Supreme Court Traveling Docket

6:30 p.m. Monday, April 9, 2018 Colby High School

The Kansas Supreme Court is heading to Colby as part of its ongoing outreach to familiarize Kansans with the high court, its work, and the overall role of the Kansas judiciary.

It will be the Supreme Court's first visit to Colby in the court's 157-year history, and it will be the eighth time the court will hear cases in the evening.

Oral Argument and Public Reception

The public is invited to attend the special session to hear oral arguments in person. Court will be in session from 6:30 p.m. to about 8 p.m. Monday, April 9, in the 999-seat auditorium at Colby High School, 1890 S. Franklin Ave.

The court will hear oral arguments in two cases. After the session concludes, the justices will greet the public in an informal reception in the commons area adjacent to the auditorium.

Quiet, Please

Talking during oral arguments is prohibited. If you arrive after proceedings start, or you must leave the auditorium before it ends, be as quiet as possible entering and exiting the auditorium. Also, do not talk immediately outside the doors to the auditorium.

Security Screening

If you attend in person, plan to arrive before 6 p.m. to allow time to get through security screening. Follow these guidelines to make your check-in as quick and easy as possible:

  • Do not bring large bags, large purses, backpacks, computer cases, or briefcases.
  • Do not bring knives, pepper spray, firearms, or weapons.
  • Do not bring electronic devices like laptop computers, handheld games, personal digital assistants, or tablets. If you have to carry a cell phone, it must be turned off or its ringer silenced, and it must be stored out of sight.
  • Do not bring food or drink.

Court and school district staff will not be responsible for property left outside the auditorium.

Cases on Docket

The court will publish a booklet for the special session that explains the proceedings and describes the cases. Summaries of the cases to be heard, and briefs filed by the attorneys involved in the cases, will be available on this page ahead of the special session.
