Appeal No. 118,448: State of Kansas v. Howard R. Pruitt

Butler County: (Criminal Appeal) Pruitt appeals his first-degree murder conviction and hard-25 life sentence he received in Butler County District Court.

He also claims the court erred when it denied his motion for a new trial based on one juror sleeping through part it. Combined with other errors, Pruitt alleges he was denied a fair trial.


Appeal No. 119,278: GFTLenexa LLC v. City of Lenexa

Johnson County: (Civil Appeal) GFTLenexa LLC leased property that was reduced in size when the City of Lenexa condemned part of it to widen a street. GFTLenexa lost some rental income from a sublessee because the property size was reduced. GFTLenexa sued the City to recover its lost rental income, asserting a claim of inverse condemnation. The district court ruled in favor of the City. GFTLenexa appeals, arguing in part the district court wrongly found the property lease prohibited suing the City.
