TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in two cases next week in Hutchinson after spending part of the day visiting area schools to discuss the role of courts in civilized society.

The special session at Hutchinson Community College will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in B.J. Warner Recital Hall and is expected to last about 90 minutes.

One case involves a man who is appealing his conviction in Butler County for possession of methamphetamine. The other is an appeal from a Wichita home supply store seeking to recover money it says it is owed for drywall materials.

Prior to the session, Supreme Court justices and Reno County judges will speak with area students about the importance of the judiciary.
