A disciplinary hearing for Douglas County District Attorney Suzanne Valdez has been rescheduled for three days in December.
A two-day hearing on a disciplinary case against the Douglas County district attorney has been postponed at her attorney’s request, which cited a “personal tragedy.”
A pending complaint against Douglas County DA Suzanne Valdez will proceed to a disciplinary hearing in which several judges and former prosecutors may be called to testify.
A complaint accuses the Douglas County DA of misconduct for her comments about a judge, including allegedly calling him a sexist and a liar. DA Suzanne Valdez’s attorney is challenging an ex-employee’s involvement in the investigation.
A judge has ruled that prosecutors did not withhold information that should have been turned over to a defense attorney regarding an ex-deputy accused of violating law and policy. This case, the latest to highlight an ongoing conflict between the DA and the sheriff, leaves some questions lingering.

Douglas County’s top prosecutor says her office has not yet issued any notices for violating laws regulating the sale of certain forms of THC products, and Lawrence business owners would like to keep it that way.
But some proprietors fear that “One or two of these people are going to ruin it for everyone else.”
