Sunshine Suzanne SykesThe Senate confirmed three judicial nominees Wednesday, including a Central District of California judge who will be the first Native American to serve as an Article III judge in California.

Sunshine Suzanne Sykes, who was confirmed by the chamber by a vote of 51-45, is also set to become the first member of the Navajo Nation to serve as an Article III judge anywhere in the country.

Article III judges are jurists appointed to lifetime appointments on federal district and circuit courts, as well as the Supreme Court.

As a judge on the Superior Court of Riverside County in California, Sykes oversaw the court’s appellate division and civil litigation department. Previously, she spent eight years as deputy county counsel for Riverside County where she represented government agencies and the California Department of Public Social Services in cases involving abused and neglected children.
