    Justice Kennard has consistently distinguished herself as a jurist on every court she has served. The people of the State of California have been fortunate to have been the recipients of her talents, hard work and wisdom. Diminutive in stature, she stands very large in the history of the California judiciary. Plus, she is a lady with true grit. Thank you Justice Kennard.
