Governor Jerry Brown has just appointed UC Berkeley Law Professor Goodwin Liu to the California Supreme Court. Liu previously was President Barack Obama's choice for the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. But that nomination was blocked by Republicans, who objected to Liu's written positions. Liu eventually withdrew his candidacy.
