Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued an executive order today renaming San Francisco’s Civic Center court complex, which is home to the state Supreme Court, as the “Ronald M. George State Office Complex.”
It doesn’t quite have the ring to it that the “Ronald M. George Justice Center” had -- the name that legislators tried to dub the office complex in August in George’s honor.
That idea died after the SEIU stepped in.
The two buildings in George’s eponymous office complex, the Hiram M. Johnson State Office Building and the Earl Warren Building, will retain their names, the governor noted in a news release announcing his order.
The governor commended George in his order for being “a superbly effective leader of California’s judicial branch.”
