FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Kansas is entering a very heated election season which includes retention votes for 11 Kansas Appellate court justices and judges. A significant factor being discussed is the manner in which these judges/justices are selected. This information can be found at http://www.kscourts.org/appellate-clerk/general/supreme-court-nominating-commission.asp.

 

The Kansas Bar Association has no connection with the Supreme Court Nominating Commission and plays no role in the election or appointment of members to that commission or the selection of Supreme Court justices. The KBA is a nonprofit, voluntary member’s organization — attorneys in Kansas are not required to join the KBA. Elected members of the commission are elected by all licensed attorneys in the state of Kansas, not by KBA membership. Appointed members of the commission are appointed by the governor, who does not review those selections with the KBA.
