WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has turned down former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline’s request to review the indefinite suspension of Kline’s law license.

The justices did not comment Monday in declining to step into Kline’s case.

The Kansas Supreme Court suspended Kline’s law license in October 2013 over his investigations of abortion providers. The state court found Kline repeatedly misled or allowed subordinates to mislead others, including a Kansas City-area grand jury, to further his investigations while attorney general and later as a county prosecutor.
