The National Lawyers Association and Life Legal Defense Foundation have both filed briefs in support of Phill Kline as he faces the final hearing of his ethics battle in Kansas.
The NLA brief stresses that effective law enforcement requires that the executive and judicial powers remain separate, and that prosecutors’ decisions be shown due deference.
The NLA brief also asserts the danger of misapplying the rules, not only in this case, but also in consideration of the chilling effect this precedent could have on other prosecutors.
The LLDF brief reviews the two judicial decisions that have already addressed and disposed of the factual underpinnings of two claims against Kline, and strips down the remaining claims revealing their lack of legal and factual basis. The brief notes that the DA’s own investigators found no probable cause of any violation of ethics, and that some of the rules have been inproperly applied retro-actrively or under a vague “catch-all” rule.
Please be in prayer for Phill and his legal team as they prepare for their final hearing set for November 15 in Kansas.
