On behalf of the Kansas Supreme Court, I am pleased to invite the people in communities near Parsons to join the court for a special session Monday evening, Oct. 3.
The court will hear two cases starting at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Parsons High School. Right after this special session of about 90 minutes, the court's seven justices will greet everyone in an informal reception.
During the special session, you will hear arguments made by Kansas attorneys in support of their clients. You will also hear justices ask the attorneys questions to learn why they believe the law supports their clients’ positions.
Our questions and the attorneys’ arguments help clarify the legal questions before us. We use this information to meet our duty to be fair and impartial when we apply the U.S. Constitution, the Kansas Constitution, and the laws passed by our state Legislature. We do this without regard to politics, special interests, public opinion, or even our own beliefs.
Come see who we are, what we do, and how we do it. You will come away from the experience with a better understanding of our court and the appellate process.
My colleagues and I look forward to our visit to southeast Kansas and meeting you Oct. 3.
— Chief Justice Marla Luckert
Kansas Supreme Court
