PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- A southeast Kansas trial judge will sit with the state Supreme Court this week when it has a special session in Pittsburg to hear appeals in four cases.

The high court announced that Allen County District Judge Daniel Creitz will substitute for Justice Nancy Moritz during Tuesday's session at Pittsburg State University.

The Supreme Court said Moritz had removed herself from the four cases, without giving further details.

The justices are hearing appeals in three civil cases and a case involving a state law that mandates tough minimum prison sentences for violent sexual crimes.

Creitz is an Iola native who was first appointed to the bench in 2002. He is also chief judge for the 31st Judicial District, which covers Allen, Neosho, Wilson, and Woodson counties.
