Release Date: Feb 18, 2015

TOPEKA – (February 18, 2015) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today filed the State’s formal appeal with the Kansas Supreme Court in the school finance litigation. The attorney general released the following statement:

 “Today, our office has filed with the Kansas Supreme Court the formal paperwork to docket the State’s appeal of the three-judge panel’s December 30, 2014, school finance ruling. This completes the formal legal request for the Supreme Court to review the panel’s decision, which we think is legally flawed and inconsistent with the Supreme Court’s prior instruction.  We will brief our arguments more fully in the course of the appeal.”
