« Judicial SIGHT-ations: Frolics and Detours of Article III Celebrities! | Main | Courthouse Forum: More on John Marshall High and Naughty State Court Judges »

July 28, 2004



The Superior Courts of California have 1,499 authorized judges and 437 commissioners and referees; the State Courts of Appeal comprise 105 justices; and, of course, a few on top. Extrapolating to the nation, there are about 10 times as many State court judges as federal. State judges are bound to have more sex pump scandals. They also have to deal with parking tickets and divorces: bound to drive some crazy.

I've managed to save up roughly $66850 in my bank account, but I'm not sure if I should buy a house or not. Do you think the market is stable or do you think that home prices will decrease by a lot?

Guan Yang

Taint: Stupidity! As usual, Google has the answer:

Guan Yang

AK: Ah.

Easy Rider

Guan: You thought wrong. The Attorney General signs
commissions for federal judges, as does the President. The
commissions bear the seal of the Department of Justice
(gold) not that of the Department of State (white). If you
don't believe me, you can drop by my office in Pasadena and
have a look. The Secretary of State does countersign
commissions of Executive Branch officials.

Ciao. AK


Guan, Is that stupidity, an oblique reference to Marbury or what? A3G, I should note that I know of at least three Article III judges who have “allowed” criminal defendants to “escape” by either ordering the police not to arrest them in their courtroom, or not cooperating with the police.

Guan Yang

I thought that the Secretary of State signs commissions for federal judges.
