A Kansas Court of Appeals panel travels to Hays this week to hear oral arguments in eight cases.
The Hays Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/10qhdFC ) the three-judge panel will convene Tuesday and Wednesday at the Ellis County Courthouse.
The docket includes appeals in cases involving legal and medical malpractice, child custody, drunken driving, mineral rights and other legal issues.
The three judges will also render decisions on 10 cases that were submitted without oral argument.
The 13-member Court of Appeals sits in Topeka, but often sends three-judge panels to conduct business in other parts of Kansas.
