When California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye announced this summer that she would not be seeking another term on the bench, she said she didn’t plan on retiring completely.
“My husband said, ‘You’ve got to do something,’” she said with a smile.
Turns out, she won’t be taking a break at all. Cantil-Sakauye starts as president and chief executive of the Public Policy Institute of California on Jan. 1, the day her term as chief justice ends. She will be 63.
“I am both humbled and honored to have another opportunity to serve,” Cantil-Sakauye said in an announcement of her new post Wednesday. “I understand this role will be different from my current one and yet I believe my skillset and experience have prepared me well for this task.”
