Kansas Supreme Court Sanctions Former AG Kline

KSAL StaffOctober 18, 2013

The Kansas Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended the law license of former state Attorney General Phill Kline following allegations of ethical misconduct during his investigation of abortion providers.

Friday’s decision comes after repeated disputes between Kline and his critics over his tactics.

Kline was Kansas attorney general from 2003 to 2007 and Johnson County district attorney in 2007 and 2008. He is now a visiting professor at Liberty University in Virginia.

A state disciplinary panel contends Kline repeatedly misled or allowed subordinates to mislead others, including a grand jury, to further his investigations.

As attorney general, Kline pursued misdemeanor criminal charges against Dr. George Tiller over late-term abortions performed by his Wichita clinic. The case was dismissed for jurisdictional reasons.
