The Kansas Supreme Court accepted public comment on a proposed amendment to Rule 106: Court Records. The amended rule would add subsection (e) regarding accessibility of child in need of care court records. The new subsection would make all records in a child in need of care case confidential and not publicly available, including the events index. This will allow the child’s complete name to be used throughout the court record without disclosing it to the public.
