New CA Supreme Court Justice
|The governor has chosen |
"In filling this vacancy, I looked for someone with strong experience, unimpeachable character and someone who is widely respected. I found all of that and more in Justice Corrigan. She is a brilliant jurist and for the past 12 years she has done a magnificent job on the First District Court of Appeal," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "Justice Corrigan is careful, thoughtful, quick-witted, and brings a deliberate, detail-oriented approach to the law. She will bring honor to California's high court and serve the people with dignity and integrity."
Here's a profile of her that notes that "Corrigan is regarded as one of the more conservative members of the First District on criminal justice."
