Supreme Court to conduct special evening session in El Dorado

The Kansas Supreme Court will conduct a special evening session October 7, 2019, in El Dorado as part of its ongoing outreach to familiarize Kansans with the high court, its work, and the overall role of the Kansas judiciary. The court will be in session from 6:30 p.m. to about 8 p.m. Monday, October 7, in the 900-seat auditorium of El Dorado High School, 401 McCollum Rd. It will be the Supreme Court’s first visit to El Dorado in the court’s 158-year history, and it will be the 11th time the court will hear cases in the evening. The public is invited to attend the special session to observe the court as it hears oral arguments in two cases to be announced later. After the hearing concludes, the justices will greet the public in an informal reception in the commons outside the auditorium.

The court started conducting evening sessions when it visited Hays in April 2015. The court's visit to Lawrence in April 2019 drew a record crowd for an evening session of about 800 people.
