Kansas Court of Appeals to sit in Manhattan

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Judges of the Kansas Court of Appeals will hear arguments in four cases in Manhattan as part of Kansas State University's observance of Constitution Day.

The panel will convene in the Student Union on Sept. 17, the day the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1787.

On the docket are the denial of tenure for a University of Kansas professor; a prosecutor's appeal of an order granting a new trial in a Salina murder case; and two cases involving the rights of people stopped on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The arguments will be heard by Court of Appeals Judges Patrick McAnany, Anthony Powell and Steve Leben, as well as Riley County District Judge David Stutzman.
