Hutch News: Kansas Supreme Court to be in Hutch Tuesday

By Mary Clarkin | The Hutchinson News

Tuesday, the Kansas Supreme Court will conduct a first-ever special session in Hutchinson, hearing oral arguments in two cases from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The session will take place in the B.J. Warner Recital Hall in Hutchinson Community College's Stringer Fine Arts Center, 600 East 11th. It is open to the public.

The justices will greet the public in an informal reception following the oral arguments, a press release said.

The visit is part of the Supreme Court's outreach effort to familiarize the public with the high court and its work, according to the press release. Such sessions outside the Topeka courtroom began in 2011, and the court has conducted business in a number of cities, including Garden City, Hays, Greensburg, Salina and Wichita.

Before the evening session, the visiting Supreme Court justices will partner with judges from Reno County District Court to visit some schools to talk about the role of courts in society, according to the release.
