WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Newly released court documents show a Kansas doctor has agreed not to perform abortions at the space she leases in a Wichita office complex, delaying a lawsuit by her landlord.

Dr. Mila Means says in the documents released Monday that she's not performing abortions at the site and doesn't presently intend to do so. Means says she's seeking alternative office space.

She also agreed to give Foliage Development 30-days notice if she decides to perform abortions.

The development company filed a lawsuit earlier this month arguing that performing abortions at the multi-tenant office building would create an unsafe environment. Following the agreement with Means, proceedings in the case were stayed for six months.

Abortion services haven't been offered in Wichita since Dr. George Tiller was killed by in May 2009.
