Dawn Geske Northern California Record:

After 23 years on the California Supreme Court bench, a senior Republican justice will retire, offering a vacant seat to be appointed by Gov. Jerry Brown…

The new justice will be the fourth court appointment of Brown’s tenure. There is much speculation that Brown will appoint James M. Humes, an openly gay man. Humes served as Brown’s deputy while he was attorney general and as governor. Brown appointed him to the California Appeals Court in 2012.
