Professor Goodwin Liu was confirmed last week as an Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court. Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, Attorney General Kamala Harris, and Presiding Justice Joan Dempsey Klein of the Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Three, voted unanimously to confirm him.

"The AABA has gotten to know Professor Liu through the Ninth Circuit confirmation process and our support and admiration for him has only grown. We are glad that the governor moved so decisively to keep him for California," said Malcolm Yeung, President of AABA.

Professor Liu, an Associate Dean at the Berkley School of Law, is also an award winning scholar. He was once a Supreme Court clerk and is a Rhodes Scholar.
