Justice Carlos Moreno likely to join Irell & Manella in Los Angeles

In today’s Daily Journal [subscription required], Laura Ernde reports that three anonymous sources have confirmed that Justice Carlos Moreno will join the Los Angeles office of Irell & Manella after he steps down from the California Supreme Court on Monday. Neither Moreno nor the firm would confirm the report. Moreno intends to announce his future plans on Tuesday. Assuming Ernde’s sources are accurate, Moreno will be returning to Los Angeles, where he makes his home. There has been much speculation about the identity of Moreno’s successor, as we noted here, here and here, but Governor Jerry Brown has not yet nominated his replacement.
