Serving as the state's solicitor general, Professor Stephen McAllister argued during a recent hearing that resulted in a judge refusing to dismiss a lawsuit filed by two doctors challenging state regulations.

Hanna wrote:

Stephen McAllister, a Lawrence attorney and University of Kansas Law professor who serves as the state's solicitor general, argued during the hearing that only the state's highest court can settle some issues, such as whether the Kansas Constitution recognizes a right to privacy protecting access to abortion.

"The question is whether we want to go there sooner or later," McAllister said. "The state's view is, let's get there now."
