The Kansas Supreme Court is making its first visit to Hays to hear cases as part of an outreach effort.
Court officials said in a news release that three cases will be considered on the evening of April 13 at Fort Hays State University. The appeals involve a women convicted of sinking another person’s motorboat, a man convicted of driving under the influence and another man convicted of five sex offenses.
The justices are making the trip in an effort to familiarize residents with the high court and the overall role of the Kansas judiciary.
The Supreme Court convened outside its traditional Topeka courtroom to mark the state’s 150th anniversary in 2011. Stops have included Salina, Greensburg, Wichita, Overland Park, Pittsburg and Kansas City.
