PA Supreme Court Issues Order Temporarily Suspending Kathleen Kane’s Law License

The PA Supreme Court issued an order Monday temporarily suspending the law license of Attorney General  Kathleen Kane.  The order specifically says, “This order should not be construed as removing Respondent from elected office and is limited to the temporary suspension of her license to practice law.  Click Here for a copy of the order.
The Office of Attorney General issued this statement in response (the second revision of the day), ““I am disappointed by the action taken by the Supreme Court today. It is important to note that the order specifically states that ‘this order should not be construed as removing Respondent from elected office.’ 
           “I continue to maintain my innocence and plan to keep fighting to clear my name while serving out the rest of my term in office. I am confident the hundreds of employees of the Office of Attorney General will continue protecting the people of Pennsylvania with the same high level of energy, dedication and professionalism they have always displayed. 
          “To this end, in the wake of the Commonwealth Court hearing, I’ve instructed my office to engage in a comprehensive review of all emails sitting on OAG servers to fully comply with the RTKLs. Our preliminary review has generated emails of government officials, including law enforcement officials and judges, heretofore unknown to us. These emails will be fully released either as public documents defined by the Commonwealth Court, or at my discretion.”
