TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Former Kansas Attorney General Phil Kline is asking two Kansas Supreme Court justices to recuse themselves from ruling in his ethics case. He contends the judges hold biases that could influence their decision.

An attorney for Kline says in documents released late Monday that Chief Justice Lawton Nuss and Justice Carol Beier should not be allowed to rule on an administrative panel's recommendation that his law license be suspended indefinitely.

The case stems from Kline's criminal investigation of Kansas abortion providers that began during his one term as attorney general. The state Board for Discipline of Attorneys said Kline repeatedly misled other officials or allowed subordinates to mislead others to during the investigation.

Kline strongly disputes those conclusions.
