TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas judge has granted a state board temporary custody of a former abortion provider's patient files after hundreds of his records turned up in a recycling bin.

The State Board of Healing Arts went to court last week for custody of the discarded documents plus others still in the possession of Krishna Rajanna. Shawnee County District Judge Franklin Theis granted the board's request Monday.

The board revoked Rajanna's medical license in 2005. A woman later found hundreds of his files dumped in a recycling bin near his home in Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City.

The state board expects to keep the records until it finds a permanent custodian or until they're more than 10 years old and can be destroyed.
