The Garden City Telegram (AP): “Kansas moved ahead toward selecting a new state Supreme Court justice on Wednesday, while facing a federal lawsuit alleging that voters’ rights are being violated because lawyers unfairly dominate the process. Nine lower-court judges and four attorneys hoping to fill the high court vacancy met a noon deadline for submitting applications to the Supreme Court Nominating Commission.” | Dool v. Burke, No. 10-1286-MLB-KMH (D. Kan.) [complaint]
“Only candidates nominated by the Commission may be appointed by the Governor. Since all nominees allowed to move forward by the Commission may be opposed to the Governor, the Judicial Council, and not the people, has complete control over who becomes a judge in Kansas.”
