TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Supreme Court has disbarred an Overland Park lawyer after finding he committed professional misconduct.

The Kansas City Star (http://is.gd/gTaJfG ) reports that the court issued its disbarment order Friday in the case against Michael Clay Schnittker. The order says Schnittker ``systematically stole'' more than $150,000 that belonged to his law firm over a three-year period.

The order also says he only stopped after his law partner discovered discrepancies in the firm's financial records.
