Schwarzenegger Nominates Filipina as Chief Justice of CA Supreme Court

Breaking news!

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has nominated 3rd District Court of Appeals Associate Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye to become the first Asian American Chief Justice and the second Female Chief Justice [trivia of the day: the first female Chief Justice was Rose Bird from 1977 to 1987]. She will most likely follow in the mold of outgoing Chief Justice Ronald M. George, who is a moderate Republican and was seen as a surprise by many in legal circles.

Looking at her record, lets just hope she wont disappoint and won’t first give people and then go deny people their rights.
