Retiring Court Spokesman Bridged News, the Law

Whenever Kansas Supreme Court spokesman Ron Keefover read or heard the words “legal technicality” in a news story, he fired off a firm letter to the journalist.

It was part of the longtime court spokesman’s campaign to erase “legal technicality” from news stories. It is a shorthand phrase to explain why a court overturned a defendant’s conviction in a high-profile case.

“It’s just lazy or sloppy reporting,” Keefover said of the phrase. “It wouldn’t take much time to do research or ask someone” why a conviction was overturned.
