TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas attorney general will not be representing the Kansas Corporation Commission in a Shawnee County lawsuit accusing the state agency of violating the state's open meetings.

Don Brown, spokesman for Attorney General Derek Schmidt, told The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/1b7owVo) that Schmidt has declined to represent the KCC in with the open meetings investigation being conducted by Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor.

Taylor filed a complaint last month alleging KCC members approved a rate increase for water users in Salina during a process that wasn't public.

KCC attorneys have argued that the process is legal when commissioners are unable to meet together. After the lawsuit was filed, however, the KCC indefinitely suspended the practice.
