Goodwin Liu and Julie Su Confirmed

Governor Brown on Thursday swore in Goodwin Liu as the California Supreme Court's newest justice. Brown nominated Liu to the Supreme Court in July, after Liu withdrew his name from consideration for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Republicans had blocked Liu's nomination by President Obama, complaining that he was too liberal for the Ninth Circuit. Liu replaces Justice Carlos Moreno, the author of a number of important employment and class action decisions, who retired in February. Recent articles re. Liu: Sacramento Bee; Los Angeles Times.

On Tuesday, Julie Su was confirmed as California's Labor Commissioner. Su will lead the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, or DLSE.

Congratulations to Justice Liu and Commissioner Su.
