Aid for Women v. Foulston: District Court Opinion

Kansas - 2006

This matter comes before the court on plaintiffs’ action for declaratory and injunctive relief. Plaintiffs seek to prevent enforcement of Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline’s application of the state mandatory reporting statute, through an Attorney General’s Opinion,1 to consensual underage sexual activity.2 Specifically, as filed, this case turns on whether Kan. Stat. Ann. § 38-1522, commonly referred to as the “Kansas reporting statute,” requires reporting of all consensual underage sexual activity as sexual abuse.
