SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Having served as the Superior Court Commissioner for two years, Dylan Sullivan announced at a gathering of supporters that she will seek election as a judge to the El Dorado County Superior Court.

Sullivan will run for the open seat of retiring Judge Daniel B. Proud, who has endorsed her.

“As a judicial officer in this county I will continue to be fair, respectful, provide impartial justice to all and not legislate from the bench,” said Sullivan.

She is also endorsed by Presiding Judge Suzanne N. Kingsbury, Assistant Presiding Judge James R. Wagoner, Presiding Juvenile Judge Steven C. Bailey, Judge Nelson Keith Brooks, Judge Kenneth J. Melikian and Judge Warren Curt Stracener.

“I am honored to have served with such an exemplary judge,” Sullivan said of Judge Proud. “He truly embodies the expectation we should aspire to for judicial temperament and decision-making. I am humbled that Judge Proud believes in me and supports my candidacy.”

Sullivan is the only Superior Court Commissioner for El Dorado County Court, who manages Department 12 in South Lake Tahoe, where she hears all family law, dependency, unlawful detainers, traffic and restraining order cases.

Additionally, she presides over a drug court for parents with drug and alcohol problems working to reunify with their children. Commissioner Sullivan travels to Placerville on Mondays to hear all the cases filed by the Department of Child Support Services in El Dorado County.

Prior to her current position with the court, Sullivan worked for the California Parole Board both in litigation management and as a deputy commissioner, where she adjudicated matters related to life inmates seeking parole and parolees. Her expertise in parole law is illustrated in her an annual Continuing Education of the Bar publication and in the courses she teaches for judges across the state for the Committee on Judicial Education and Research. Prior to joining the Parole Board, Sullivan was in private practice, where she did criminal defense and civil litigation.

Sullivan received a bachelor’s degree in Physiology from the University of California at Davis in 1988; and, in 1997, she graduated Order of the Coif with great distinction and highest honors from McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific.

She is a member of the El Dorado County Child Abuse Prevention Council, an advisory member to the board of the El Dorado County Big Brothers Big Sisters, on the Core Committee for the Department of Justice’s local Safe Haven grant, a Kiwanis member, and volunteers as the Teen Court judge in South Lake Tahoe.
