Court of Appeals dockets

The Kansas Court of Appeals reserves certain dates each year on which to consider cases. When the Court of Appeals schedules a case to be considered, it puts the case on a docket.

The Court of Appeals sits in panels of three judges at locations throughout the state, including the court's primary courtroom in the Kansas Judicial Center in Topeka. Each three-judge panel will take up 18 appeals over a two-day period every month. 

The Court of Appeals may schedule special settings as needed.

Court of Appeals dockets

When a case does not present a new question of law, and oral argument is deemed neither helpful to the court nor essential to a fair hearing of the appeal, it is placed on the summary calendar. These cases are deemed submitted without oral argument.
