What We Want To Know About Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye, CA Supreme Court Chief Justice Nominee

July 21st, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

California Gov. Schwarzenegger has nominated 3rd District Court of Appeal Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye to be the next chief justice of the California Supreme Court, which would make Cantil-Sakauye the first Asian American (and Filipina) to lead the state’s highest court, if confirmed in November.

  1. What are her politics?
  2. What’s up with that fabu name?
  3. What kind of face cream is she using and where do we get some?!

Thanks, Dad and Tom!
