Commission on Judicial Appointments Approves Nomination of Tani Cantil-Sakauye as New California Chief Justice

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Commission on Judicial Appointments, headed by Current Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald M. George, has given unanimous approval to Tani Cantil-Sakauye as the next chief justice of California.
Cantil-Sakauye, 50, a Filipina American, is a moderate Republican who began her legal career as a Sacramento prosecutor, worked on legal and legislative matters in the George Deukmejian administration and moved by Republican appointment up the judicial ranks to the state Court of Appeals in Sacramento.

She would face voters unopposed in November for a confirmation vote. If approved, as expected, she would replace George in January.
