Kansas coalition, Kassebaum urge retention of appellate justices, judges on ballot
October 25, 2022
TOPEKA — A coalition of five organizations representing more than 5,000 practicing lawyers recommended Kansans vote to retain all Kansas Supreme Court justices and Kansas Court of Appeals judges on statewide ballots Nov. 8.
The Kansas Bar Association, Kansas Women Attorneys Association, Kansas Trial Lawyers Association, Kansas Women Attorneys for Freedom and Kansas Association of Defense Counsel said voters ought to support retention of all six Supreme Court members on the ballot.
Seven of the state’s Court of Appeals judges face yes-or-no retention votes on the ballot, and the coalition said Kansans should affirm their positions.
“These judges were appointed by five Kansas governors, both Republicans and Democrats, over the past
30 years,” the coalition said in a statement. “We urge Kansas voters to ignore the political and special interest groups targeting our appellate courts.”
