Fire Phill Kline points out this exchange in a Chat with Attorney General Phill Kline:
kugrad: Exactly how many cases did you try in court, meaning you were the lead attorney in the courtroom giving oral arguments, prior to becoming attorney general? If you must estimate, use small incremental steps such as 0–5, 5–10, 10–15, etc. Thank you, kugrad
Attorney General Phill Kline: My practice primarily consisted of construction mediation and arbitration. Early in my career my caseload was more substantial in number and less substantial in size of the case. I would average about 20 cases at a time. In my specialty of practice, however, I would be primarily responsible for 1 or 2 cases the cases were so mammoth in size. For example, my representation of the State of California consumed more than one year. My representation of Emerson Electric in a terrible accident in Hutchinson involving a salt plant consumed an enormous amount of time. Conversely, I represented the prison doctor at Lansing from inmate lawsuits and I would work 10–15 cases at a time. My experience in the law has been much more broad than Pauls who has had one type of case in one district court and has never entered private practice.
“Paul” in that passage is Paul Morrison, who has been a prosecutor in the Kansas City area for about 20 years.
Morrison has added two great ads to his page of videos. One takes Kline to task for his panty-raiding suits. The other contrasts Klines claims about clearing a DNA backlog against the size of the backlog (16,000 samples).
