Honorable Alice A. Lytle (Ret.)

On December 21, 2018, the Sacramento legal community lost a pioneer and role model, the Honorable Alice A. Lytle (Ret.). Judge Lytle was born in Newark, New Jersey and raised in New York. In 1961, she graduated from Hunter College with a degree in physiology and public health. However, it was not until after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, that Judge Lytle was called to the practice of law. In 1973, Judge Lytle graduated from UC San Francisco’s Hastings College of Law where she worked tirelessly to achieve social justice for persons of color through her work with the Black Law Students Association and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. In 1983, Judge Lytle was appointed to the Sacramento Municipal Court, becoming the first African-American female judge in the county. During her 20-year tenure on the bench, Judge Lytle made an important impact. In particular, she was the driving force behind the establishment of La Casita, a children’s waiting room at the Gordon D. Schaber Courthouse. Later, in 1995, she was assigned to the Juvenile Division where she continued to serve for many years because she found the work rewarding. Among her many accomplishments, she created a mentoring program for juvenile wards and was a fierce advocate of early childhood development programs for teenage mothers.
