“Chief justice bemoans state Supreme Court vacancy”

Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye spoke to the media yesterday about more than just her #MeToo moments.  Today’s Daily Journal [subscription] reports that she also said she’s anxious for Governor Jerry Brown to fill the Supreme Court’s “lengthy vacancy” (see here and here), which she claims has hampered the court.  Confirming something we’ve speculated about, the article quotes the Chief Justice, “‘It’s difficult to operate without a seventh justice,’ said Cantil-Sakauye, who said some cases are stuck due to 3-3 ties.”

Additionally, the Chief Justice commented again about federal immigration agents making arrests in state courts, an issue for which she has gained national attention since she wrote a letter to the administration accusing agents of “stalking undocumented immigrants in our courthouses.”  (See also here and here.)  She said she is “still hearing about ICE enforcement in courthouses.”
