Supreme Court staff changes . . . and central staff descriptions

The Supreme Court today announced that its Capital Central Staff will have a new director next month — Steven Rosenberg, who has been a senior attorney on the staff since 2006 — and that the current director — Kaye Reeves — will, after nine years, return to the chambers staff of Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar.

The press release also explains the court’s staffing in general. Besides each justice’s own chambers attorneys, the court has three separate central staffs. The Capital Central Staff, with nine attorneys and a director, assists the justices in death matters, including drafting memoranda and opinions in capital appeals, habeas corpus petitions, and related motions. The Criminal Central Staff prepares conference memoranda on petitions for review and habeas corpus petitions in non-capital criminal matters. The Civil Central Staff prepares conference memoranda on petitions for review in civil cases and attorney and judicial discipline matters.
