California Justice Resigns
California Supreme Court Justice Mariano-Florentine Cuellar has resigned to become president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace after serving as a justice for seven years.
Gov. Newsom will be tasked with appointing a replacement.
To remain a justice, the appointee will have to stand for retention in an election during the next gubernatorial race.
Once an appointed judge wins their retention election, the judge will serve a 12-year term.
