Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the state Supreme Court's decision to suspend his law license after finding that he violated 11 rules of professional conduct in prosecuting abortion providers.

Kline, whose license was suspended indefinitely two years ago, said the Kansas Supreme Court had no standing to hear the case because five of seven justices recused themselves and were replaced by lower court judges.

Kansas law requires at least four justices to hear a case and only two remained, Kline said in the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court late on Sunday. He also said illegal or arbitrary actions violated his rights under the U.S. Constitution.

Lawyers for Kline said the indefinite suspension was biased and politically motivated.
