Rosen named to Kansas Supreme Court

July 22, 2005


— State District Court Judge Eric Rosen will be the new Kansas Supreme Court justice. Rosen, of Topeka, was selected today by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.

Other finalists for the job were Douglas County District Judge Robert Fairchild, Lawrence, and Marth Coffman, a Lawrence attorney.

Rosen will replace Robert Gernon, who died in March.

The seven-member Kansas Supreme Court is the highest appellate court in the state and has been at the center of several controversial decisions in recent months, including overturning the state death penalty and ordering lawmakers to increase school funding.

Hopefully our legislators can do something to get this rogue court under control.

Start by moving them to quarters befitting their status. An abandoned warehouse should do.

Then get the lawyers out of the selection process. These shysters are destroying our society and they need to be dealt with.
