By Roxana Hegeman

Nationwide, senior status judges handled 24 percent of all civil and criminal cases that were closed last year, up from 14 percent in 1996, according to a study released this month by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. But In Kansas, the share of cases handled by senior judges last year is far higher: encompassing 48.5 percent of the workload, according to the TRAC study. Kansas has the eighth-highest percentage of cases handled by senior judges among U.S. states.
