Chief Justice Lawton R. Nuss announced today that the Kansas Supreme Court will start video streaming its oral arguments live on the Internet, beginning today.
The Court will hear oral arguments daily as part of its August docket from 9 a.m. to noon Monday, August 27, through Friday August 31. At oral arguments, each side's attorney makes a presentation to the Court and answers questions from the justices. The video stream will be available via the Judicial Branch website at www.kscourts.org under the "Supreme Court Oral Arguments" heading.
"With this video stream, the Court will be even more open in its work. Now everyone, regardless of their location, can observe the justices in session," Chief Justice Nuss said. "Next week's docket provides an excellent example of the benefit this technology brings to our citizens
because the appeals include the one involving the construction permit of the proposed Holcomb coal electricity generating plant," the Chief Justice said.
The appeal involving the longstanding Holcomb plant controversy will be argued at 9 a.m. Friday, August 31, 2012.
