Antiguan born judge Margo Kitsy Brodie is the first Afro-Caribbean jurist to sit in US district court.

Margo Kitsy Brodie was confirmed Monday as a Brooklyn Federal Court judge, becoming the first Afro-Caribbean-born jurist to sit in US district court.

The US Senate voted 86 to 2 to approve Brodie, who was nominated by the White House in June.

Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, noted before the vote that Brodie had “successfully prosecuted numerous cases” over a legal career spanning more than 20 years.

Senator Charles Schumer, a Democrat from New York, sponsored Brodie’s nomination.

Born in Antigua, Brodie received her undergraduate degree from Brooklyn’s St Francis College and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

After graduation, Brodie worked as assistant corporation counsel in the New York City Law Department’s real estate litigation department, according to a press release from Schumer’s office.

Following a three-year stint with the Law Department, Brodie joined Carter Ledyard & Milburn where she handled commercial cases for five years.

Brodie then re-entered public service as an assistant US attorney in the Eastern District of New York where she worked on cases involving public corruption, money laundering, narcotics and gun trafficking.

At the time of her nomination, she was deputy chief of Brooklyn’s criminal division.

Brodie was rated qualified by a majority of members of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary.
