TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The state Supreme Court has appointed three people to hear a lawyer's complaint against the state's top legal ethics official.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/MdR2WN ) that the Kansas Supreme Court has named Overland Park attorney Nancy Anstaett, retired Kansas Court of Appeals judge J. Patrick Brazil and Wichita attorney Mikel Stout to hear the complaint filed by Keen Umbehr in May against state disciplinary administrator Stanton Hazlett.

Umbehr accuses Hazlett of falsely telling him that an ethics review panel made a finding of probable cause against Umbehr in a dispute with the Kansas Department of Corrections. Umbehr was cleared of any wrongdoing.

Hazlett denies any misconduct and says he welcomes an investigation.
