Yesterday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled against Kane, so the decision to act on another grand jury’s recommendation of charges against Kane, a Democrat, now rests with Ferman, a Republican.

In a statement released this morning, Ferman says she will review the case “carefully and thoroughly” with a commitment to “fairness, integrity, and justice.”
