TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Two Kansas Court of Appeals judges and three district court judges have been appointed to hear a disciplinary case against former Attorney General Phill Kline.
The judges appointed Monday will sit with two state Supreme Court justices to review the case. The high court's five other justices removed themselves last month, citing their previous knowledge of the allegations.
A complaint accuses Kline and former subordinates of misleading other officials to further investigations of abortion providers. Kline strongly disputes the allegations
Supreme Court Justice Dan Biles, one of the two remaining to hear the case, named the replacements.
They are Court of Appeals Judges Karen Arnold-Burger and Henry W. Green Jr. and District Judges Edward Bouker (BOO'-kuhr) of Ellis County, Bruce Gatterman, of Pawnee County, and Michael Malone, of Douglas County.
