High court denies Kline’s request

By The Herald Staff | 4/28/2014

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court denied Monday a request from former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline to review the indefinite suspension of his law license, according to the Associated Press.

Kline’s license was suspended in October 2013 by the Kansas Supreme Court for his investigation into abortion providers. The state’s high court found Kline repeatedly misled or allowed subordinates to mislead others, including a Kansas City-area grand jury, to further his investigations while attorney general and later as a county prosecutor.

The U.S. Supreme Court did not comment on its denial of Kline’s request, though he may seek reinstatement of his Kansas law license in three years.

The former prosecutor now is an assistant professor of law at Liberty University in Virginia, according to media reports.
