New California Supreme Court Historical Society newsletter

The California Supreme Court Historical Society recently published its Spring/Summer 2012 newletter. It includes these articles:

A Tribute to Selma [Moidel Smith], by Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar

The Mathew O. Tobriner Memorial Lectures at UC Hastings, by Justice Joseph R. Grodin

Chief Justice Traynor Inducted into California Hall of Fame

[The article contains Governor Brown’s remarks about Traynor at the induction ceremony, including this: “I have a special fondness in my heart for Justice Traynor. He wrote a letter of recommendation for me to Yale Law School, which is the only reason — I think — I got in. I don’t know whether he wrote it because he thought I was going to be a great legal scholar or because my father appointed him Chief Justice. But, whatever, I’m here.”]

[We previously reported on Traynor’s induction here.]

My Friend Elwood Lui, by Presiding Justice Arthur Gilbert

Appellate Court Legacy Project Online, by Justice Judith L. Haller
