Stanford’s Cuéllar brings policy chops to high court

David Carrillo quoted in The Recorder, July 22, 2014

David Carrillo … said the choice of Cuéllar is interesting for three reasons. It gives the court “another academic powerhouse justice in the tradition of Traynor, Newman and Liu,” Carrillo said. It restores representation of the state’s 39 percent Hispanic population. There hasn’t been a Latino on the high court since Justice Carlos Moreno retired three years ago. “And the Berkeley-Stanford rivalry of appointments to the court continues, with Berkeley ahead 13 to 10,” Carrillo said.
