Commission hearing set on Liu Supreme Court appointment

The Commission on Judicial Appointments will meet on August 31 to consider Governor Brown’s appointment of Professor Goodwin Liu to the California Supreme Court.

If confirmed and sworn in that day, as expected, the new justice will have less than a week until the start of the court’s next oral argument calendar, which may well include the case — referred to the court by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — concerning the standing of Proposition 8’s proponents to defend the anti-same-sex-marriage initiative in the courts.
