APNewsBreak: Feds receive Kan. abortion complaintAPNewsBreak: Feds receive complaint about ex-Kansas abortion provider's disposal of records
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) ' A federal agency has received a civil rights complaint about a former Kansas abortion provider's disposal of hundreds of patients' files in a recycling bin near his Kansas City-area home.
Leon Rodriguez, director of the Office for Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, confirmed Thursday the office received a complaint March 26 about Krishna Rajanna's handling of files.
The files were from an abortion clinic that closed in 2005 after Rajanna's Kansas medical license was revoked.
The complaint came two days after the files were discovered in the bin near Rajanna's home in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park.
Rodriguez said the complaint was assigned to a regional office in Kansas City, Mo., for review. He declined to comment further.
Rajanna also declined comment.
