- Trial: A hearing that takes place when the defendant pleads "not guilty" and witnesses are required to come to court to give evidence.
- Venue: The geographical location in which a case is tried.
(a) Upon the motion of a party, a district court may transfer any civil action to any county where it might have been brought upon a finding that a transfer would better serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses and the interests of justice.
(b) In any action in the district court which is commenced pursuant to chapter 60 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated and in which it shall be made to appear that a fair and impartial trial cannot be had in the county where the action is pending, for reasons other than the disqualification of the judge, the court, upon application of either party, may change the place of trial to some county where the objection does not exist.
(c) When all parties who are not in default agree and the agreement is approved by the court of original venue and the supreme court, a civil action may be transferred to any county.
