WICHITA, Kansas (AP) -- A judge next week will consider whether to dismiss the case against a pastor accused of stalking the woman who opened Wichita's first abortion clinic since doctor George Tiller was murdered.

Julie Burkhart, executive director of Trust Women, currently has a temporary stalking order against Mark Holick. She is seeking to make it permanent.

Sedgwick County Judge James Beasley on Tuesday will consider her motion and a defense motion to dismiss the case.

Holick is accused of picketing Burkhart's home and handing out ``wanted-style'' fliers listing Burkhart's address.

Holick says the protest activities are protected by the first amendment.
