Kansas Supreme Court Seeks Flexibility

KSCB News - January 19, 2012 8:14 am

Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton
Nuss is pushing legislators to repeal a law requiring the state to
have at least one judge in each of its 105 counties.
In his annual State of the Judiciary address Wednesday evening,
Nuss said the Supreme Court needs more flexibility in administering
the state’s judicial branch.
The chief justice released the recommendations of a commission
appointed by the court last year to study ways to make the judicial
branch more efficient. Its proposals included repealing the
one-judge-per-county rule.
Nuss also said the court wants to create an electronic document
filing system and merge different district court computer systems.
The proposed repeal of the one-judge-per-county rule is likely
to meet with strong opposition from some rural legislators.
