April 2011 Special KSC Docket (Salina)

Here are the criminal cases on the KSC docket for April 13, 2011. This was a special setting of the KSC and the first time in modern memory that the Court sat outside of Topeka (here is the news release on the special setting).

These summaries are based on the issues listed in the briefs filed and may not very accurately or fully describe the actual issues in the cases. I recommend you review the briefs yourself if you would like more details. Don't forget, arguments are streamed live over the internet at the appellate court website (here) if you would like to listen in to any of these arguments.
