Under KS law, in civil cases, either a six or a 12-member jury may be requested, or by agreement of the parties the jury could be waived and the case tried to a judge alone. Criminal cases require a 12-member jury for felonies and a six member jury for misdemeanor. A majority of ten jurors may decide a civil jury trial, but a unanimous verdict is required in criminal cases and in any six member jury case.
