Congratulations to Judge Sykes. Hopefully, she can be an advocate for Native Americans that have been harmed by their tribes. There are hundreds in Riverside County that have been harmed by the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians.
Attorney Sunshine S. Sykes became Riverside County Superior Court’s first Native American judge when she appointed to the bench by Gov. Jerry Brown Thursday, Dec. 5.
Brown also announced Thursday the appointment of Khymberli S.Y. Apaloo as San Bernardino County Superior Court judge. She had been serving as a commissioner. Apaloo, 43, is from Rancho Cucamonga.
Sykes, 39, of Riverside, has been a a deputy county counsel at the Riverside County Office of County Counsel since 2005.
The graduate of Stanford University Law School, where she also earned her undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree, is a member of the Navajo Nation.
She was a contract attorney at the Juvenile Defense Panel from 2003 to 2005. Sykes was a staff attorney and Equal Justice Works fellow at the California Indian Legal Services from 2001 to 2003, according to a release from the governor’s press office.
Sykes, a Democrat, fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Randall White.
I don't know how much of an advocate she will be when she and Mark Macarro are said to be meeting.
so exactly what did she do , who did she help at the Indian Ctr.a lot of words of praise going on here. I have my doubts, appointed by Gov.Moonbeam....lol
Don't hate on her because she's from a real Nation Din'e . ( The people).
PLEASE JUDGE LOOK INTO THE ILLEGAL DOINGS OF MARK MACORRO, COUNCIL MEMBERS, TRIBAL RANGERS, RIVERSIDE COUNTY SHERIFF DEPT., RAYMOND BASQUEZ SENIOR, RAYMOND BASQUEZ JR., REGARDING DRUG MAKING TERRORIZING SENIOR CITIZENS WITH ETHER GAS (USED TO MAKE METH INTO A SOLID FORM) . THREATS OF LANDLOCK AND FOLLOWING THROUGH WITH WITH THE THREAT. CRIME AFTER CRIME, BEATING FROM A RIVERSIDE COUNTY SHERIFF, OFFICER DICKEY, ON JULY 27, 2013. RESISITING ARREST,NNOT SO!!!
That's a Federal Court matter ,I think your CAPS LOCK is stuck.
BURNING OAK TREES ON FEDERAL PROPERTY IS A CRIME, AS WELL AS MAKING METH! AND NO, MY EYES WERE BURNT WITH ETHER GAS! RAY BASQUEZ JR., NEEDS TO BE SENT TO DEATH ROW! ALSO METH WAS BEING TAKEN ACROSS STATE LINE, ARIZONA. THIS JUDGE IS FROM ARIZONA! DO YOU NOT THINK JESUS CHRIST HAS MY BACK AND THE WHOLE SITUATION...YOU ARE FOOLISH TO THINK NOT
I am running against Sunshine S. Sykes for the judicial office to which she was appointed to fill. (Now using the name S. Suzanne Sykes, dropping Sunshine for unknown reasons). This vacancy was filled only a few months before the election cycle. I don't believe that politics should determine the selection of judges. I am for diversity but one cannot presume that her appointment to the bench will result in diversity of philosophy. Especially if politics is behind the appointment. Politics and justice is not the same. People expect justice from our courts. Not politics. Michael J. Harrington www.HarringtonForJudge.com
