The Kansas Court System is comprised of a Supreme Court, a Court of Appeals, then the District Courts, and Municipal Courts. The Supreme Court is the highest court in the state. Municipal Courts handle local ordinance violations, and the District Courts are the trial courts established by the KS Constitution.
The highest court in the state is located in Topeka and is the court of last resort. They handle appeals from lower courts and the most serious criminal cases. This court also hears cases where a law is accused of being unconstitutional.
The Court of Appeals is the intermediate court of appeals for the state and sits either “en banc” (all the judges) or using a panel of three judges to decide on cases. KS Court of Appeals hears appeals from the State Corporation Commission and the lower courts. They hold sessions all over the state.
There are seven Justices that sit in the Supreme Court and 14 judges that sit on the Kansas Court of Appeals. Through an amendment to the constitution in 1900, the number of justices was increased to seven. The Governor appoints new justices into office, and they serve six-year terms.
