Our managing partner, Linda Parks, has been appointed to the newly formed Kansas Court of Appeals Nominating Commission. Governor Laura Kelly issued an executive order establishing the Nominating Commission and appointed Linda to chair the commission. The first order of business will be to submit nominations to the governor to fill the current vacancy on the Court of Appeals.
“As an experienced lawyer, as a leader in the Kansas bar community, and as an active member of the Wichita community, Linda is an ideal person to lead this Commission, especially as it starts its work from scratch with an appointment to be made this legislative session,” Kelly said. “I’m confident she and the rest of the Commission are committed to doing the hard work of selecting nominees for the Court of Appeals and doing it right.”
“I thank Governor Kelly for the trust she is putting in me and the Court of Appeals Nominating Commission,” Parks said. “The 14 judges who serve on the Court of Appeals make important decisions that affect the everyday lives of Kansans. We will do our best to identify nominees who represent the best of our state and will enforce her laws in a fair and impartial manner.”
Hite, Fanning & Honeyman congratulates Linda!
