Sarah Warner was sworn in on Thursday as the Kansas Court of Appeals’ 14th Judge. The event took place in the Supreme Courtroom in Topeka.

Warner is a Pittsburg, Kansas native and graduated from St. Mary’s-Colgan High School in 1998.

“We are eager to welcome Sarah Warner as the newest judge on the Kansas Court of Appeals, and we look forward to working with her in the years to come,” said Karen Arnold-Burger, chief judge, who presided over the swearing-in ceremony.

Warner was appointed to the Court of Appeals on May 14 by Governor Laura Kelly. The appointment was confirmed May 29 by the Kansas Senate.

“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to serve on the Kansas Court of Appeals,” Warner said. “It’s something I have wanted to do my entire professional life, and I look forward to joining my colleagues on the court.”

Warner replaces Patrick McAnany, who retired January 14 after 15 years as a Court of Appeals judge.
