TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A lawyer for a Planned Parenthood clinic in Kansas is seeking to recover records gathered during a criminal investigation now that all charges against the abortion provider have been dropped.

Pedro Irigonegaray said Tuesday that he's contacted the offices of Attorney General Derek Schmidt, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe and Shawnee County District Judge Richard Anderson.

Earlier this month, Howe dropped the last of the 107 criminal charges filed by the previous district attorney against Planned Parenthood's clinic in Overland Park. Howe consulted with Schmidt, and the attorney general's office investigated the clinic before Schmidt took office in January 2011.

Anderson supervised that investigation and has maintained records from it.

Irigonegaray says patient privacy will be protected most if records return to the clinic.
