TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A criminal case against a Planned Parenthood clinic in Overland Park has been delayed again.
A preliminary hearing to determine whether the case should go to trial had been scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. But Johnson County District Judge Stephen Tatum postponed it indefinitely.
District Attorney Phill Kline and clinic attorney Pedro Irigonegaray both said they sought the delay. But they give different reasons.
Kline said he can't proceed as long as a dispute over patients' medical records remains before the Kansas Supreme Court.
Irigonegaray said the issue is an appeal Kline filed over one of Tatum's pretrial rulings.
Kline has filed 107 charges. The clinic denies wrongdoing.
