KS Senate Confirms Stegall for Appeals Court

(Photo by Stephen Koranda)The Kansas Senate has confirmed the nomination of Caleb Stegall to the Kansas Court of Appeals. The 32-8 vote will send Stegall to the state's second-highest court. Governor Sam Brownback chose Stegall, his administration's top attorney, for the seat. Senator Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, said he won’t support Stegall because the other candidates weren’t made public.

But Senator Terry Bruce, a Republican from Hutchinson, said Stegall can be compared to judges appointed to other courts in Kansas.

This is the first appointment under a new system where the governor chooses nominees for the Kansas Court of Appeals. The nominees must be confirmed by the state Senate.
