Skip to comments.Brown nominee to California's high court wins approval

Stanford law Prof. Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar won a unanimous vote from a state commission Thursday for his nomination to the California Supreme Court, moving Gov. Jerry Brown a step closer to reshaping the Republican-dominated court.
The three-member Commission on Judicial Appointments approved Brown's nomination of Cuéllar, a 41-year-old scholar, to succeed conservative Justice Marvin Baxter on the court. Baxter is retiring in January and Cuéllar will take office for a 12-year term if approved by state voters in November.
The seating of the governor's two appointees will likely form "a new majority," moving the court somewhat to the left, said Gerald Uelmen, a Santa Clara University law professor who has written extensively about the court. "I think it will make a huge difference."

As a native of Los Angeles. I am thankful that God moved me out of there before it became a province of Mexico.
Well, at least he’s not a wetback Mexican Citizen.
He might just as well be looking at his affiliations.
No, considering all of Jerry's options, I think this ornament of the California bar, Floriano Tequila-Cuervo-Gomez y Gonzalez de Mariachi Taco, was the best pick. He has every qualification: big gold wrist watch, nice car, almost speaks Spanish sort of like that illiterate anus Villaraigosa, and like Sotomayor he has a nice mustache and a lot of really hot girlfriends,
It isn't easy being Governor of a Mexican Province like Aztlán.

Is it a pájaro rosa?
12 months till I move to Texas from the lost land of CA.
You couldn’t pay me to live in that state. I don’t know how FR does it.
Lucky you, where to?
In California, how on earth could you even tell???
He means to the left of moonbeam.
"Cuéllar was born in the northern Mexican town of Matamoros and, as a youngster, walked 7 miles each way to a school in Texas. His family immigrated legally to Calexico (Imperial County) when he was 14 and his father got a job teaching Spanish. Cuéllar later attended Harvard and Yale Law School and obtained a doctorate in political science at Stanford, where he has taught since 2001."
It is somewhat amusing watching California morph into a 3rd world sh**hole.
