    Consumer Alert: Consumers who purchased RadioShack gift cards owed refund

    To file a claim, visit or call (844) 794-3477.

    TOPEKA – (February 8, 2016) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today alerted Kansas consumers holding unused gift cards purchased from RadioShack can obtain refunds from the company, which filed for bankruptcy last year.


    Under a court order filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, a trust will treat as a priority claim and pay 100 percent of the balance to consumers holding gift cards that were purchased from RadioShack, the RadioShack website or any of its authorized sellers. Cards acquired in any other way will not be treated as a priority claim, meaning those claimants may not receive payment. 

    Schmidt cautioned consumers that no one associated with this settlement would contact them to ask for personal or financial information, or to request any payment. Consumers who are asked for such information or payments should be wary of potential scams and refuse those requests.

    Kansas consumers who wish to learn how to file for a refund of an unused Radio Shack gift card may visit the attorney general’s consumer protection website at or call (800) 432-2310. The deadline for filing a claim is December 2, 2016.

    Supreme Court to conduct special evening session March 9 at Topeka High School

     TOPEKA—The Kansas Supreme Court announced today it will conduct a special evening session at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, at Topeka High School as part of its ongoing outreach to familiarize Kansans with the high court, its work, and the overall role of the Kansas judiciary.


    The court will be in session from 6:30 p.m. to about 8 p.m. in the auditorium of Topeka High School at 800 SW 10th Avenue in Topeka.


    “The Supreme Court has conducted special sessions in communities all across Kansas, but this is our first evening session in Topeka,” said Chief Justice Lawton R. Nuss. “We chose Topeka High School for its historical significance in our community, although we would be honored to visit any of the Topeka area high schools.” 


    The public is invited to attend the special session to observe the court as it hears oral arguments in cases to be announced prior to March. After the hearing concludes, the justices will greet the public in an informal reception in the school’s cafeteria.


    “Community visits are a great way for the people of Kansas to get to know us — who we are and what we do — and to learn about the judiciary’s role in our society,” said Nuss. “We encourage anyone who’s ever been curious about Supreme Court proceedings to come. We provide live webcasts of all our courtroom sessions in the Kansas Judicial Center, but people tell us there’s nothing like seeing proceedings in person.”


    The Supreme Court's has conducted several special sessions outside its Topeka courtroom since 2011 and the sessions regularly draw crowds numbering in the hundreds. The court's first evening session in Hays in spring 2015 drew an estimated 700 people, and a crowd estimated to number 500 attended an evening session in Garden City in October 2015.  


    In 2011, the court marked the state sesquicentennial by convening in a special session in the historic Supreme Court courtroom in the Kansas Statehouse. From there, and through the end of 2011, the court conducted special sessions in Salina, Greensburg, and Wichita. The court held sessions in Overland Park in 2012, Pittsburg in 2013, Kansas City in 2014, Hays in April 2015, and Garden City in October 2015.
