A disciplinary hearing for Douglas County District Attorney Suzanne Valdez has been rescheduled for three days in December.

The hearing was previously set for Oct. 12 and 13, and it’s regarding a complaint a judge made about DA Suzanne Valdez’s conduct. Read the backstory in the links below.

Valdez’s attorney, Stephen Angermayer, wrote in a motion to continue that hearing that he had experienced a personal tragedy that would require him to attend to a personal matter, and that he would be unable to attend.

The hearing is now set to begin at 8:30 a.m. Dec. 18, 19 and 20 in the Court of Appeals Courtroom on the second floor of the Kansas Judicial Center, 301 SW 10th Ave. in Topeka.

The panel is allowing the special prosecutor on the case to take depositions of two witnesses who will be unavailable for the new hearing dates.

The panel that will preside over the hearing has not yet ruled on whether the hearing might be available via livestream for people in Douglas County who will be unable to make it to the public hearing in person.
