A Call to Service…
Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye responded to a jury-service summons today and eventually was not selected. In the past, she has served on juries throughout her public service career in the judicial branch—as a lawyer, a Superior Court Judge, and a Court of Appeal Justice.
Under California's one-day or one-trial jury service policy she has completed her jury service for the year.
Her selfie is the first-ever selfie taken by a sitting Chief Justice of California.
