HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Supreme Court is scheduled to conduct an upcoming special session in Hutchinson.

The session will take place Tuesday at Hutchinson Community College’s Stringer Fine Arts Center and is open to the public. The cases on the docket include an appeal involving a conviction in Butler County for possession of methamphetamine.

The Hutchinson News reports the visit is part of the Supreme Court’s outreach effort to familiarize the public with the high court and its work. The court said in a release that such sessions outside the Topeka courtroom began in 2011.

Five of the seven justices are up for retention on the Nov. 8 election ballot: Chief Justice Lawton Nuss and Associate Justices Carol Beier, Daniel Biles, Marla Luckert and Caleb Stegall.
