Biography

The Hon. Allen H. Sumner is a judge for the Sacramento County Superior Court in California. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Gray Davis in November 2003. He filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Michael Ullman (Ret.).

Judge Sumner earned his J.D. from the University of Santa Clara School of Law in 1976.

After graduating from law school, Sumner worked as deputy legal affairs secretary in the legislative affairs office for then-governor Jerry Brown. Seven years later, Sumner would join the California Department of Justice's Office of the Attorney General. He started out as the head of the legislative program for then-attorney general John Van de Kamp, where he was instrumental in the implementation of the state's DNA databank and computerized fingerprint system. Later, Sumner transferred to the A.G.'s government law section, where he was tasked with the responsibility of representing the state's officers and agencies in court cases. Then, in 1998, he became general counsel for then-governor Gray Davis' State and Consumer Services Agency. Two years later, Sumner was named chief deputy of the governor's legal affairs office. He was serving in that capacity at the time of his appointment to the Superior Court in 2003.
