Jerry Brown Criticized For Not Going Latino With California Supreme Court Pick
"I congratulate Goodwin Liu on his recent nomination by Governor Jerry Brown to replace Associate Justice Carlos Moreno, the only Latino Justice on the California Supreme Court. Professor Liu's credentials are exceptional and I, along with my fellow members of the California Latino Legislative Caucus, am looking forward to getting to know him.Unfortunately, with this appointment Governor Brown has missed an opportunity to designate a candidate to the Supreme Court who would better reflect the diversity of California.The Latino Legislative Caucus has been working closely with the Governor's office submitting various recommendations of highly qualified Latino candidates to state boards, commissions, and judicial posts and will continue working with Governor Brown on future appointments and on issues of great importance to our community."
