KS Supreme Court to Begin Live Video Streaming, Hear Power Plant Case

Supreme Court signPhoto from the Kansas Health Institute News Service.Starting today (MON), the Kansas Supreme Court will begin online live streaming video of court proceedings. It's the same week justices will hear arguments in a case involving a controversial coal-fired power plant. Lawton Nuss is chief justice of the Kansas Supreme Court.

This Friday, the court will hear a case involving a proposed coal-fired power plant near Holcomb in southwest Kansas. Environmental groups are challenging a state permit allowing the project to move forward. They say it will be unnecessarily damaging to the environment and the permit was improperly issued. The companies trying to build the plant say the permit was issued properly. Again, Chief Justice Lawton Nuss.

 Nuss says the new online streaming system cost around $13,000, but he says it will pay for itself by helping the court system save money. Training for local court clerks can now be done through live online streaming, instead of requiring travel.

The streaming is available on the Kansas Supreme Court website.
