High Court Taking Up Homeless City Hall Case

KSAL StaffApril 30, 2015

The Kansas Supreme Court is taking up the case next week of a suburban Kansas City official who was kicked out of office for allowing a homeless friend to sleep in City Hall.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe’s office sought the review after the Kansas Court of Appeals found in October that the ouster of Prairie Village Councilman David Morrison was improper. Morrison came under fire after he allowed his longtime friend to stay at City Hall over a four-day period in 2012. A Johnson County jury found Morrison willfully engaged in misconduct after a civil trial.

But the appeals court found Morrison’s actions didn’t meet the legal requirements for the “drastic” step of ouster. The appeals court said a “simple error of judgment” is not sufficient.
