Kansas court system to be explained


At this Friday’s meeting of the Wichita Pachyderm Club, Judge Eric Yost will present “An Overview of the Kansas Court System.”

Yost is a judge in the 18th Judicial District Court System, which is the court system for the State of Kansas for Sedgwick County. These courts are “the trial courts of Kansas with the power to preside over all civil and criminal cases, including divorce and domestic relations, damage suits, probate and administration of estates, guardianships, conservatorship cases, care of the mentally ill, juvenile matters, and small claims. It is here that the criminal and civil jury trials are held. The district court also has appellate jurisdiction for municipal courts and most administrative agencies.”

Yost works in the civil division. He has served in the Kansas House of Representatives and the Kansas Senate, including as Vice-President of the Senate.
