Attorney: Judges Still Pursuing Lawsuit on Judicial Budget

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An attorney for four Kansas judges says they will continue pursuing a lawsuit over the court system's budget despite an order in another case protecting its funding. Lawyer Pedro Irigonegaray questioned Wednesday whether a petition filed Tuesday by Attorney General Derek Schmidt in Neosho County District Court was flawed. Schmidt successfully sought to block enforcement of a law dealing with the judiciary's budget until March 15. The law was enacted this year to preserve a change in how chief district court judges are selected. The law said if the change was overturned, the judiciary's entire budget was nullified. A Shawnee County judge last month struck down the selection-process change. The judges represented by Irigonegaray then filed their lawsuit against this year's budget measure in Shawnee County.
