Kansas Supreme Court forms time standards committee


TOPEKA—The Kansas Supreme Court announced today it has designated a new committee to help review and revise time standards for decisions in district and appellate court cases.

"We've pulled together a talented group of judges and lawyers with diverse experiences to tackle this job," said Justice Carol A. Beier, who will chair the committee. "Members of the committee will take a look at time standards currently in place in Kansas and examine similar standards used in other state court systems. We hope to have a comprehensive set of recommendations ready for the court by next fall."

Justice Beier will be joined on the committee by:

    • Judge Kathryn Gardner of the Kansas Court of Appeals

 

    • District Judge Glenn Braun of Ellis County District Court

 

    • District Judge Teresa Watson of Shawnee County District Court

 

    • District Judge Tim Dupree of Wyandotte County District Court

 

    • District Magistrate Judge Doug Jones of Chase County District Court

 

    • Lyndon Vix from Fleeson, Gooing, Coulson & Kitch in Wichita

 

    • Bethany Roberts from Barber Emerson in Lawrence

 

    • Lesley Isherwood from the Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office

 

    • Randall Hodgkinson from Washburn University School of Law

 

    • Jeff Chanay from the Kansas Attorney General's Office



By creating the time standards committee, the Supreme Court is addressing one of many areas of Kansas court operations studied by a Blue Ribbon Commission composed of Kansas residents.

The committee will have its first meeting January 22, 2016, at the Kansas Judicial Center in Topeka.
