Jerry Brown nominates senior aide to appeals court

Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday nominated a second senior member of his administration on a California court, naming Jonathan Renner, his legal affairs secretary, to the Sacramento-based Third District Court of Appeal.

Renner, 44, was a senior assistant attorney general for government law when Brown was attorney general, then joined Brown’s administration when the governor took office in 2011.

The nomination comes two years after Brown named longtime aide Jim Humes, then Brown’s executive secretary, to the First District Court of Appeal. Brown last month appointed Humes presiding justice of the court’s first division, elevating his position.

Like Brown and Humes, Renner is a Democrat.

Renner’s nomination requires confirmation by the Commission on Judicial Appointments. If confirmed, Renner will fill the vacancy created when Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye was appointed to the California Supreme Court in 2010.

Pay for the position is $211,260 a year.
