That's fine, thank you.

Mr. Spies:

Pursuant to your email dated April 29, 2017, you asked for a list of all "Stand Your Ground" motions filed in the Third District Court since 2006. Your request did not specify a particular timeframe or case associated with this list. Because the list was not more clearly identified, we must deny your Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) request on the basis of K.S.A. 45-221(a)(1) which allows the Kansas Supreme Court to establish rules regarding exemptions to the disclosure of court records under KORA. Kansas Supreme Court Rule 196 and Administrative Order 189 require us to deny any KORA requests that require us to compile information or respond to a bulk request. Your request clearly falls within these exemptions as presently written.

It should be noted, the Court is not the custodian of records for the District Attorney's office. I do not know whether they compile the specific information you seek. Please feel free to contact them regarding your inquiry. They can be reached at 785-251-4330 or<>.

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
