WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas attorney general's office says
patient medical records mailed to a former prosecutor's new address
should not derail the case against an abortion provider.

Assistant Attorney General Barry Disney says in court papers
filed Friday that the package mailed to former Kansas prosecutor
Phill Kline was at best an innocent act that means nothing. He says
that at worst it's the act of a private citizen whose conduct is
not binding on state prosecutors.

The medical records were part of an investigation into Dr. George Tiller of Wichita. He's scheduled to go to trial March 16 on 19 misdemeanor charges alleging he failed to obtain a second opinion for some late-term abortions from an independent physician, as required by Kansas law.
