TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton Nuss has been appointed to the board of directors of the national Conference of Chief Justices.

The appointment was made last week during the organization’s national conference on July 31 in Vermont.

Nuss was named to the Kansas Supreme Court by then-Gov. Bill Graves in 2002. He became chief justice in August 2010.

The Conference of Chief Justices is made up of the top judicial officers of each state, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. The organization meets to develop policies and procedures to improve the operations of state judicial systems.
