September 2011 Special KSC Docket (Wichita)

Here are the criminal cases on the KSC docket for September 29, 2011, held in Wichita. This was a special setting of the KSC.

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.
