January Story Rough #2 ~ Brown to Appoint New Justice

A California Supreme Court justice’s recent decision to resign from office has given Governor Jerry Brown the chance to appoint a new Supreme Court justice for the first time as his second round as governor—a significant selection that will strengthen Brown’s influence on the court and allow him to fulfill his campaign promise to appoint judges based on capability rather than favoritism.

Justice Carlos R. Moreno resigned on Jan. 6 in order to expand his horizons, switching from being a Supreme Court justice to working as a private judge or for a private law firm. According to Santa Clara law professor Gerald Uelmen, Moreno was a “very thoughtful and very fair judge,” someone who appropriately preserved the rights under the California Constitution. Though Moreno was a Democrat--in fact, the only Democrat among the other court justices--he was rather moderate as a justice, siding with both conservatives and liberals in several different issues. He was even considered by President Obama as a candidate for the United States Supreme Court, though the position was eventually filled by Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Currently being considered to replace Moreno are Court of Appeal Justice Martin Jenkins, Justice Maria Rivera, Arturo Gonzalez, Arthur Gilbert, J. Anthony Kline, and Thomas Saenz. The candidates are extremely diverse, with some, such as Gilbert and Kline, having decades of judicial experience and others, such as Gonzalez and Saenz, having none. Brown is expected to be very careful in choosing the new justice, as his decision more than 30 years ago to place Rose Bird, a friend and member of his previous cabinet, as chief justice of the Supreme Court did not work well; it angered many and, ultimately, led to Bird being voted out of her position. He is also predicted to choose someone who will be able to work well with the six other Republican-appointed judges in the court. Brown will definitely “push California in the right direction,” voiced junior Artine Arzani, who trusts that Brown’s decision will be beneficial, no matter what.

By appointing a new Supreme Court justice, Brown can begin his second time as governor fixing his past mistakes and making sure not to repeat his errors, something California will surely profit from in the long run.

FINAL

A California Supreme Court (Supreme Court) justice’s recent decision to resign from office has given Governor Jerry Brown the chance to appoint a new Supreme Court justice for the first time in his second round as governor—a significant selection that will strengthen Brown’s influence over the court and allow him to fulfill his campaign promise to appoint judges based on capability rather than favoritism.

Justice Carlos R. Moreno resigned on Jan. 6 to "try something new," as he explained, deciding to retire from his position as a Supreme Court justice to work as a private judge or for a private law firm. According to Santa Clara law professor Gerald Uelmen, Judge Moreno was a “very thoughtful and very fair judge,” someone who appropriately preserved the rights of citizens under the California Constitution. As the only Democratic justice in the court, he was rather balanced in his rulings, siding with both conservatives and liberals in several different issues. He was even considered by President Barack Obama as a candidate for the United States Supreme Court, though the position was eventually filled by Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Currently being considered to replace Justice Moreno are Court of Appeal Justice Martin Jenkins, Justice Maria Rivera, Arturo Gonzalez, Arthur Gilbert, J. Anthony Kline, and Thomas Saenz. The candidates are extremely diverse, with some, such as Gilbert and Kline, having decades of judicial experience, and others, such as Gonzalez and Saenz, having none. Brown is expected to be very careful in choosing the new justice, as his decision more than 30 years ago to place Rose Bird, a friend and member of his previous cabinet, as chief justice of the Supreme Court did not work well; it angered many and ultimately led to Bird being voted out of her position. Governor Brown is also predicted to choose someone who will be able to work well with the six other Republican-appointed judges in the court. "Brown should be cautious of who he chooses," stated junior Amanda Larsh, explaining that appointing someone with barely any experience in the field "could have a very negative effect on the state." Freshman Irene Liu, however, trusts the governor’s decision, expressing her belief in his "okay judgment.”

By appointing a new Supreme Court justice, Governor Brown can begin his second time as governor fixing his past mistakes and making sure not to repeat his errors, something California will surely profit from in the long run. As junior Artine Arzani remarked, hopefully the new governor will be able to “push California in the right direction.”
