    Kane supporters plan rally

     A lawyer said Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is retaining him to look into disciplinary matters for her.

    However, neither Scranton lawyer James Mundy nor Kane would say Friday whether the courts are moving to suspend Kane’s law license.

    Courts officials aren’t commenting.

    Mundy said he’s never heard of the courts suspending an attorney’s license before a conviction in court. He also said it would be an end-run around the constitution’s provisions for removal.

    Kane faces criminal charges for allegedly leaking investigative information and lying about it.

    Meanwhile, Kane’s supporters are organizing a Sept. 10 rally at the state courts building, the Pennsylvania Judicial Center in Harrisburg. In a Facebook webpage advertising it, supporters express concern that state officials, including Supreme Court justices, are trying to force Kane from office.
