Chosen on Merit - Serving with Integrity

Kansas is lucky to have a transparent, fair and impartial court system in which Justices are selected on merit and serve the people and the law with integrity.

Justices of the Kansas Supreme Court are not politicians. They rule on cases that come before them on the facts and the governing legal principles that affect the issues raised by the parties.

Justices do not consider partisanship or popularity when deciding cases. They know Kansans want a high court dedicated to justice for all.

The Justices

The Supreme Court is the highest court in our state system. Its decisions set binding legal precedent that lower courts must follow. Our Kansas Supreme Court Justices have been selected based on their qualifications and have taken an oath to uphold the people’s document Рthe Kansas Constitution.

Kansans have the opportunity to choose whether Justices remain on the bench through retention elections. In 2020 voters retained Justice Eric Rosen, the only Justice on the ballot. This year, the six other Justices will appear on your general election ballot for retention.
