Justice Leondra Kruger is frequently mentioned as a leading candidate to fill the next vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court should there be an opening on the high court during President Biden’s administration. During last year’s campaign, Biden promised to name the first Black woman justice.
Anticipating a possible nomination, many have undoubtedly been evaluating Justice Kruger’s six-year tenure on California’s Supreme Court. To help with those assessments, we’ve created a document listing — with links — At The Lectern blog posts that have reported on her career since Governor Jerry Brown announced her appointment in November 2014.
The document can be found here.
Among other things, the listed posts include discussions of Justice Kruger’s opinions (both for the court and writing separately), her dissents from the denial of review, and her appointment and election to the state court.
