Tiller Dons "Attitude is Everything" Pin to Court

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita physician accused of violating a state law on late-term abortions shows up for a pretrial hearing wearing a button saying "Attitude Is Everything.''

Dr. George Tiller was in court Monday for a hearing in the case accusing Tiller of violating a 1998 state law requiring that a second, independent Kansas physician sign off on most late-term abortions.

This week's hearing focuses on the actions of two former Kansas attorneys general. The defense is asking that the charges or evidence be thrown out, claiming that former Attorney General Phill Kline was overzealous in his investigation of Tiller.

The defense claims that the man who ousted Kline, former Attorney General Paul Morrison, was pressured by his mistress to file the current case against Tiller.
