Published Decisions

A published decision will be printed in a bound volume of the court’s official publication—the Kansas Reports for Supreme Court decisions and the Kansas Court of Appeals Reports for Court of Appeals decisions.

A copy of a filed published decision before it is printed is called a “slip opinion.” Slip opinions are posted online shortly after they are filed by the courts. Online slip opinions date to October 25, 1996.
