October 2015 Special KSC docket (Garden City)

Here are the criminal cases on the KSC docket for October 13, 2015, held in Garden City, Kansas. This is a special evening setting of the KSC at Garden City High School.  For the travelling docket, the KSC has published this information page, including briefs in each of the cases.
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) and archived (here) if you would like to listen in to any of these arguments.
