Topeka, KS — Tomorrow, the Kansas Commission on Judicial Qualifications (KCJQ) is scheduled to hear a complaint against Judge Paul W. Clark for ethics violations concerning his ruling in December to dismiss thirty criminal charges filed by former Attorney General Phill Kline against George R. Tiller related to the commission of illegal late-term abortions.
The 300-page complaint was filed on March 22, 2007, by Kansas State Senator Tim Huelskamp and a group of national pro-life leaders, including attorney Phillip L. Jauregui of the Judicial Action Group, Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, and others. (Read full list of complainants)
The complaint details events and irregularities that “raise substantial suggestions of partiality” on the part of Clark. While ruling to dismiss 30 criminal charges against Tiller, Clark failed on three occasions to disclose his funding relationships with Foulston, and Monnat. The complaint further states that Clark acted improperly when he did not disqualify himself from the Tiller case.
