Brown May Leave “black seat” On State Supreme Court

Sponsored by:

San Francisco, CA — Janice Rogers Brown´s looming departure from the California Supreme Court is handing Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger his biggest judicial appointment since taking office.

And even though the idea of a “black seat” runs counter to Brown´s rulings against racial quotas, legal scholars say Schwarzenegger is probably considering replacing her with another black judge.

Brown would likely stay through September to resolve the cases she´s already heard.

Schwarzenegger´s pick will join a court that is the final arbitrator over disputes involving California law, possibly including a looming lawsuit over same-sex marriage.
