Chief justice receives award from Sons of the American Revolution chapters

TOPEKA — Chief Justice Lawton Nuss of the Kansas Supreme Court received the Silver Good Citizenship Medal from the Kansas City Area Chapters of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution during the group's 32nd annual George Washington Birthday Celebration.

Nuss also was the guest speaker at the February 24 celebrationat the Ritz Charles in Overland Park.

The gathering included Sons of the American Revolution chapters in Leavenworth, Overland Park, and Shawnee in Kansas and Independence, Liberty, South Kansas City, and Warrensburg in Missouri.

Using examples, Nuss spoke of the importance of oaths of office throughout history. Notably, since 1868, all officers elected or appointed under any law of the state of Kansas have been required to take an oath to support the United States and Kansas constitutions, he told his audience.

Nuss observed the connection between the oaths taken by judges, their devotion to justice, and President Washington, who declared, "The administration of justice is the firmest pillar of government."
