OLATHE, Kan. (AP) _ Johnson County District Attorney Phill Kline says he won't take records from a criminal case against a suburban Kansas City abortion clinic with him when he leaves office.

But attorneys for the Planned Parenthood clinic in Overland Park say they're not satisfied with his statements.

The attorneys and Kline were in Johnson County District Court on Thursday arguing about the custody of evidence that Kline has gathered.

Kline, an anti-abortion Republican, has filed 107 criminal charges against the clinic. He alleges the clinic falsified documents and performed illegal late-term abortions.

But Kline is leaving office on Monday. Planned Parenthood's attorneys are worried he'll take materials with him and distribute them.

Kline said under oath that he has no plans to do that.
