District Court Cases Could Be Piling Up
Many of the items scheduled for District Court Friday had to be continued even though the Reno County Courthouse and the District Court were open.
But, the Public Defenders Office remained closed because most of the attorney’s employed in that office live out of town, a couple in Wichita, one in Lindsborg and one in Buhler. Even the one attorney who lives in the Hutchinson area was unable to make it because she couldn’t get out of her driveway.
That means a lot of cases have been put on hold and with the court also closed this past Monday and of course on Thursday because of the storm, that means a lot of cases will have to be made up in the coming weeks.
