Kansas In the U.S. Supreme Court

September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

The U.S. Supreme Court has granted review to three separate cases involving the state of Kansas in 2019, which it will hear in October and November. Join Stephen McAllister, U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas, and special guests as they explore the constitutional issues raised in each of three cases:

  • Kansas v. Garcia: whether federal immigration laws preempt Kansas identity theft criminal laws.
  • Kansas v. Kahler: whether a state is compelled by the due process clause of the 14th Amendment to recognize an “insanity defense.” Kansas—like some states, but not others—has abolished an affirmative insanity defense, and the defendant in question has argued he was legally insane at the time of the killings.
  • Kansas v. Glover: in a case originating in Lawrence, whether it is reasonable for a law enforcement officer to assume the driver of the vehicle is its registered owner, as a general matter.

Guests panelists will include:

  • Toby Crouse, Kansas Solicitor General
  • Sarah E. Harrington, Goldstein & Russell, P.C. and counsel for the defense, Kansas v. Glover
  • Tobias S. Loss-Eaton, Sidley Austin LLP and principal drafter of petition for certiorari, Kahler v. Kansas
  • Derek Schmidt, Kansas Attorney General
