Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye - formerly known as a 3rd District Court of Appeal justice and Sacramento County Superior Court judge - is the new chief justice of the Supreme Court of California. At the appellate court, the former prosecutor showed no mercy for the 70 percent of indigent family court litigants without attorneys who attempted appeals from Sacramento Family Court. 

Sunday Satire by RoadDog

Thanks Arnold: On Monday a new chief justice of the California Supreme Court was sworn in. Compliments of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the new CJ is the ethically-challenged Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye, a former Sacramento County Family Court judge. 

Tani has been knee-deep in the documented Sacramento Family Court corruption that began in the early 1990's, and has run unchecked ever since. After her elevation to the Third District Court of Appeal in 2005, she partnered with other Sacramento County Superior Court and Deukmejian administration alumni - including Art Scotland and George Nicholson - to keep a lid on the continuing scandals generated by her former coworkers across town. 

Tani, Art and George all come from a law enforcement background and culture, and rode to the bench exploiting their faux tough-on-crime credentials. In published, and especially unpublished 3rd District decisions, the trio have shown they still swear allegiance to the cop Blue Code of Silence. Any appeal with a claim that a Sacramento Family Court homie committed misconduct is whitewashed with two coats.

Due to the hurdles thrown up by the court, few appeals were ever decided on the merits, and no family court appeal was ever won by a financially disadvantaged, unrepresented litigant who faced off against an attorney.
