Kansas City, Mo. — The dean of the Liberty University School of Law said former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline’s ability to teach at the Christian school in Virginia is unlikely to be affected by the outcome of an ethics case against him.
A state professional ethics panel recommended last week that Kline’s Kansas law license be indefinitely suspended because of his conduct during criminal investigations of abortion providers. Kline has denied any wrongdoing, but others said he allowed his anti-abortion beliefs to influence his work as a prosecutor.
The Kansas Supreme Court will make the final decision on any sanctions. Kline has already allowed his Kansas law license to lapse.
