The Met News also notes again that Kim Dunning, presiding judge of the OC Superior Court, is being evaluated by the JNE commission for the associate justice vacancy on the 2/8.
Judge Dunning, in addition to her many other accomplishments, served with distinction as a senior attorney for Justice Thomas Crosby of the 4/3. We research attorneys would do our traditional celebration right now, if only we had one . . .
Also being evaluated by the JNE commission for the 2/8 vacancy is Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ross Klein, who is assigned to the San Pedro Courthouse and runs the excellent California criminal law blog, Klein's Korner.
