LAWREADER COLUMNIST JASON NEMES, CALLS FOR CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO GIVE KY. SUP. CT. BETTER CONTROL OF THEIR CASELOAD- PLAN WOULD REDUCE COST AND TIME OF SOME APPEALS

 

Hon. Jason Nemes of Dinsmore and Shohl, calls for a reduction in the number of cases the Ky. Supreme Court is required to hear each year.  His plan would reduce the automatic right to appeal to the Supreme Court in certain criminal cases and worker’s compensation cases, but still allow the court to have discretionary to grant such appeals.   He makes a novel suggestion on how to allow Family Court cases to be heard by the Supreme Court without the filing of additional briefs past the Ct. of Appeals level.

Nemes column and full article can be located on the front page of LawReader.

Nemes served as Legal Counsel for the Chief Justice, and was Director of the Administrative Office of the Courts before moving into private practice with Dinsmore and Shohl at their Louisville office.   His father was recently elected to the Ky. House of Representatives.
