You and the Courts of Kansas
Clerk of the Supreme Court/Reporter of the Supreme Court

The clerk of the Supreme Court and the reporter of the Supreme Court are constitutional officers, which means they were established by the Kansas Constitution.

All documents related to cases coming before the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals are filed in the clerk’s office. The clerk maintains separate files for each case. After an appeal is decided, a mandate is sent to the clerk of the district court where the case originated.

The Reporter of Decisions publishes opinions and rules of the Supreme Court in advance sheets and later compiles these into bound volumes of the Kansas Reports. Similarly, the reporter serves as the Reporter of Decisions for the Court of Appeals and prepares and publishes its opinions in advance sheets and bound volumes known as the Kansas Court of Appeals Reports.
