A study looking for ways to improve the court system in Kansas is halfway finished. The commission carrying out the study held hearings across the state to gather suggestions from the public. More than 600 people attended the meetings. Chief Justice of the Kansas Supreme Court Lawton Nuss says he’s very pleased with the progress so far.
The commission is looking for ways to make the courts more efficient. One suggestion includes using electronic court filing, to allow more court documents to be handled online. But Nuss says the court currently has little funding to implement a new system. The commission will release its recommendations early next year.
