The Kansas Supreme Court says a special
commission’s report on the operations of the state’s judicial
branch will be released to the public later this month.
Chief Justice Lawton Nuss says the high court received the
report last week and is reviewing its proposals for making the
court system more efficient and effective.
The Supreme Court created the 25-member Blue Ribbon Commission
one year ago to consider such issues as the number of court
offices, their hours of operation, using technology to reduce costs
and increasing the court system’s staffing flexibility
Nuss says the justices want to review the report thoroughly
before making it public. The commission’s work included the first
comprehensive review of caseloads across the state, with loads
weighted by the complexity of cases.
