On March 23rd, the Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye of the California Supreme Court delivered her annual address regarding the state of the California judiciary to the California Legislature.
While the state of the judiciary is improving, it has a long way to go. Here’s what the Chief Justice had to say: “You [the Legislature] pass bills that the Governor signs into law that judges and justices apply and interpret. Our collective work is intertwined by design and necessity. We absorb about 8 million case filings each year. The important work done her in these chambers and the Governor’s office – our laws – come to life and are interpreted, applied, and used every day in every court, all in the pursuit of fairness.”
