On Thursday, September 16, Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar announced he will be leaving the Court effective Friday, October 29, to become President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.  Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said in a statement that Justice Cuéllar’s “legal intellect, academic training, and life experiences brought an essential perspective to California’s highest court.”  See here for the Los Angeles Times’ report on Justice Cuéllar’s departure, including my comments.  We will mark Justice Cuéllar’s final day at the Court on the 29th with an analytics-driven review of his tenure.
