Sacramento (AP) — In his effort to diversify the judicial branch, Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday nominated a deputy assistant U.S. attorney general to fill a vacant seat on the California Supreme Court.

Sen. Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, who serves as chairwoman of the California Legislative Black Caucus, thanked Brown for the appointment.

“As a caucus, we applaud Gov. Jerry Brown for his selection and appreciate his hearkening to our continuous request for more African Americans to be appointed to the California judicial system,” Mitchell said.
