District judge to sit with Kansas Supreme Court

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A northeast Kansas trial judge will sit with the state Supreme Court in December to hear a case involving attorney discipline.

District Judge Martin Asher, who serves Atchison and Leavenworth counties, was named Thursday to sit with six of the high court's justices.

Justice Marla Luckert recused herself from hearing the discipline case involving attorney Brendon Patrick Barker. Asher will only hear the one case on the docket and will participate in the court's deliberations and drafting of the opinion regarding Barker.
