Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In California there was a referendum that approved a popular vote to confirm a California Supreme Court justice a few years after their appointment, but be careful what you ask for. The notable outcome of that referendum was the ouster of the liberal judges appointed by Jerry Brown and their replacement with RW stooges appointed by Brown's Republican hack successor Dukmejian.
