Upcoming vacancy on the Court?

In a Recorder article on the ongoing Senate fight over President Bush's judicial nominees, Jeff Chorney mentions CA S. Ct. Justice Janice Rogers Brown, "whom [Pres.] Bush wants on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals."

If Justice Brown leaves the Court, it would create the first vacancy since 2001, when former Gov. Davis nominated Justice Moreno. It would also give Gov. Schwarzenegger the opportunity to appoint a S. Ct. justice. As Vanessa Hua of the SF Chronicle writes here, the Governor has faced recent criticism from the Asian American community over his judicial appointments for SF trial courts.
