Phill Kline wants new hearing over his suspended law license

Updated: 2013-12-06T19:58:26Z

— An attorney for former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline is asking the Kansas Supreme Court to consider modifying a ruling that indefinitely suspended Kline's law license.

The motion for a rehearing was filed this week by Tom Condit, who argued that investigators in Kline's case were biased and facts about the former attorney general's investigations into abortions were misrepresented.

The Supreme Court in October agreed with a state disciplinary panel that Kline repeatedly misled or allowed subordinates to mislead others, including a Kansas City-area grand jury, during his investigations. The unanimous decision came after disputes between the Republican and critics of his tactics.

Kline is now a professor at Liberty University in Virginia.
