    Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor Kathleen D. Wilkinson called for Corbett to nominate a qualified candidate as soon as possible "so the state Supreme Court can be restored to its full complement of seven justices to ensure unfettered access to justice for the citizens of Pennsylvania." lol
