ALERT! Kansas Courts Response to COVID-19
The Kansas Supreme Court conducts special dockets in different communities as part of its ongoing outreach to familiarize Kansans with the court, its work, and the overall role of the Kansas judiciary.
In 2011, the Supreme Court convened outside its Topeka courtroom in the Kansas Judicial Center to mark the state's 150th anniversary. Its first stop was the historic Supreme Court courtroom in the Kansas Statehouse. From there, and through the end of 2011, the court conducted special sessions in Salina, Greensburg, and Wichita. Since then, the court has held special sessions as follows:
2012: Overland Park
2014: Kansas City
2015: Hays and Garden City
2016: Topeka, Hiawatha, and Hutchinson
2017: Winfield and Emporia
2018: Colby and Manhattan
2019: Lawrence and El Dorado
The court canceled travel dockets in the spring and fall of 2020 and the spring of 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
