Kansas Court of Appeals to mark Constitution Day with sessions on 3 campuses

The Kansas Court of Appeals will visit Bethany College, Fort Scott Community College, and Kansas State University September 17 as part of the court's observance of Constitution Day.

 It is the court's first visit to Bethany College in Lindsborg and Fort Scott Community College in Fort Scott. The Court of Appeals is a traveling court and convenes at locations across Kansas.

 At Bethany, Judge Anthony Powell will be the presiding judge on the panel. He will be joined by Judge Stephen Hill and Judge Sarah Warner. Court will convene at 9 a.m. at Wallerstedt Learning Center, 235 E Swensson Ave. Three oral arguments are scheduled.

At Fort Scott, Judge Kim Schroeder will be the presiding judge. He will be joined by Judge G. Joseph Pierron Jr. and Judge Melissa Taylor Standridge. Court will convene at 9 a.m. in the Ellis Fine Arts Center, 2108 S Horton. Three oral arguments are scheduled.

At KSU in Manhattan, Arnold-Burger will be the presiding judge. She will be joined by Judge Henry Green Jr. and Judge Michael Buser. Court will convene at 9:30 a.m. in Forum Hall in the Student Union. Four oral arguments are scheduled.

In addition to the three panels meeting at college and university campuses, two more panels of judges will hear appeals:
At the U.S. Courthouse in Wichita, where three oral arguments are scheduled.

At the Kansas Judicial Center in Topeka, which will review a summary calendar.

In all, five panels will convene in September to hear oral argument in 13 appeals and to consider 77 other appeals on summary calendars.

Congress directs federally funded educational institutions to host educational events about the U.S. Constitution on or about September 17 each year, and the Court of Appeals visits are among those events. The Constitution was signed September 17, 1787, by a majority of delegates to the Constitutional Convention.
