The struggle for fair courts continues in Kansas. In June, Gov. Sam Brownback (R) signed a bill that could defund the entire Kansas judiciary. Last week, Larry T. Solomon, the chief judge for Kansas’ Thirtieth Judicial District, filed a brief threatening to challenge the controversial budget bill, arguing that intimidating the courts erodes public confidence in an independent and impartial judiciary. The Brennan Center is part of the legal team representing Judge Solomon.
