Considering Corrigan

Quick thoughts on today’s appointment of Carol Corrigan to the California Supreme Court:

  1. Oral arguments just got livelier. The court already includes several active questioners; once Corrigan is on board, advocates will have to be that much more prepared.
  2. The First District’s Division Three has become quite a Supreme Court pipeline. Corrigan, Ming Chin and Kathryn Mickle Werdegar all served there immediately before their appointments.
  3. This is a seriously centrist court. Every justice is arguably less conservative than Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas and less liberal than John Paul Stevens or Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
