Kobach says he’s completed legal education judge required of him

Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has told a federal judge he’s completed extra legal education that she required of him as a sanction in a voting rights lawsuit.

Kobach filed documents Friday in federal court showing he finished a six-hour course called “Civil Trial: Everything You Need to Know” on January 4th.  The course included one hour on ethics.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson ordered the extra education last year over what she concluded were violations of disclosure-of-evidence rules.  Kobach had until June 30th to complete it.

Kobach said Friday he was being held responsible for his legal team’s actions, not personal conduct.

The lawsuit challenged a Kansas law defended by Kobach that required new voters show proof of their U.S. citizenship when registering. Robinson struck it down.
