By a MetNews Staff Writer


More than half of the judicial appointments last year were women, Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. said yesterday in his annual report on applicant and appointee data.

From the period of 2011 through 2017, Brown said, he appointed 451 judges, including† 95 last year. There were more than 2,400 applications, he related.

Over the seven years, nearly 40 percent of those appointed identified themselves as American Indian or Alaska Native; Asian; Black or African-American; Hispanic; Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander; or Other/Unknown, Brown reported.
