President Bush on Thursday nominated Sacramento-based Third District Court of Appeal Justice Consuelo Callahan to a spot on the nation’s largest federal appellate court. If approved, Callahan would be one of two female Hispanic members of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, joining Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw. A graduate of McGeorge School of Law at University of the Pacific, Callahan is known as a conservative jurist whose first bench assignment was on the San Joaquin County Superior Court. She was both the first woman and the first Hispanic on that bench. Callahan was elevated to the Third District in 1996, replacing Janice Rogers Brown after Brown was elevated to the California Supreme Court. “I’m sad because Connie’s leaving will be a major loss to my court, but I’m happy for Connie and the 9th Circuit,” said Third District Presiding Justice Arthur Scotland. “She’ll be an outstanding judge on the 9th Circuit.” Callahan is Bush’s fourth nomination to the 9th Circuit. Just one, Hawaii lawyer Richard Clifton, has been approved by the Senate. Justice Department lawyer Jay Bybee had a hearing last week but has not received a vote. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carolyn Kuhl’s nomination is expected to be controversial. Callahan’s nomination, which had been expected for some time, leaves Bush with just one more nomination to make to the 9th Circuit. He’s expected to name San Francisco Superior Court Judge Carlos Bea to that seat.
