A Question of Judicial Ethics

From the Kansas City Star:

Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Kay McFarland on Monday asked an ethics panel to investigate the conduct of a fellow justice. In a meeting of the court Thursday, Lawton Nuss, 53, of Salina, withdrew from the ongoing school finance lawsuit after revealing that he had talked to two senators about proposed legislation.

The two senators are Steve Morris (R-Hugoton), who is also senate prsident, and Pete Brungardt (R-Salina).

This isn’t the first time that questions of judicial ethics have arisen in the school finance case.
