Brown continues trailblazing judicial appointments

Posted By Administration, Monday, March 2, 2015

Gov. Jerry Brown, a trailblazer in his judicial appointments, set some new milestones last year.

A report from Brown’s office Friday said 35 of his 76 judicial appointees in 2014, or 46 percent, were racial or ethnic minorities. The figures don’t include his two latest appointees to the state Supreme Court, who were both sworn into office last month: Mariano-Florentino Cuellar, a former Stanford law professor and an immigrant from Mexico, and Leondra Kruger, a former U.S. Justice Department lawyer who is African American. About 38 percent of Brown’s  court appointees in the previous three years were minorities.

More than 40 percent of last year’s new judges are women, also an increase from Brown’s previous record.
