Ex-Kansas Attorney General Lawsuit Lands in Oklahoma

KSAL StaffOctober 26, 2015

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) –  A federal judge in Oklahoma will handle the lawsuit filed by former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline over the indefinite suspension of his law license related to his investigation of abortion clinics.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten ordered on Monday removal of the case from federal court in Kansas, where it was filed. The case was transferred to U.S. District Judge Ronald White in the U.S. District Court for Eastern District of Oklahoma. The move comes with the approval of Chief Judge Timothy Tymkovich of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Kline sued the Kansas Supreme Court justices and others connected with the 2013 license suspension. He claims his punishment was toughened because of his “fervid beliefs” against abortion. Kline contends the court selectively applied rules governing attorney conduct.
