Kansas lawyer faces hearing over tweets

KSAL StaffSeptember 3, 2013

A former Kansas Court of Appeals research attorney faces a disciplinary hearing for derogatory comments she tweeted during the same kind of hearing last year for former state Attorney General Phill Kline.

WIBW-AM reports  the hearing for Sarah Peterson Herr was scheduled Tuesday for Dec. 20.

Herr posted the comments last Nov. 15 while Kline was appearing before the Kansas Supreme Court in a disciplinary hearing. The court was considering whether to suspend Kline’s law license for his conduct during investigations of abortion providers while he was attorney general and Johnson County district attorney.

Herr apologized and was fired a few days later. She had worked since 2010 for a Court of Appeals judge and was promoted the following year to research attorney.
