Raymond Joseph Lohier, Jr. - CONFIRMED
United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
On March 10, 2010, President Obama nominated Raymond J. Lohier, Jr., age 44, to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Lohier currently serves as Special Counsel to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He has extensive experience in representing the government in securities fraud, insider trading, ponzi schemes, and commodities fraud. President Obama has said that Mr. Lohier will bring "an unwavering commitment to fairness and judicial integrity to the federal bench," and that his impressive legal career is "a testament to the kind of thoughtful and diligent judge" that he will be if confirmed.
Mr. Lohier, a Haitian American, was born in Montreal, Canada on December 1, 1965. After immigrating to the United States, he received his A.B. in 1988 from Harvard College, cum laude, and his J.D. in 1991 from New York University School of Law, where he was Editor in Chief of the Annual Survey of American Law and recipient of the Vanderbilt Medal. In 1999, Lohier was married to Donna Hae Kyun Lee, who teaches law at City University of New York School of Law. A longtime resident of Brooklyn, Lohier has served on the Brooklyn Community Board since 2007.
