TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Overland Park attorney Dan Biles takes his
seat on the Kansas Supreme Court on March 6.

Biles, named to the state's highest court by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius on Jan. 7, will be sworn in at a 2 p.m. special court session. Afterward, Biles will take his seat on the far right side of the bench, traditionally the seat for the newest member.

Biles is best known for his work for state agencies. He represented the State Board of Education in a 1999 lawsuit that forced the state to spend more money on public schools. He also represented the Kansas Lottery before the Supreme Court, arguing that the 2007 expanded gambling law was constitutional. The court upheld the statute.
