Yale Counsel Confirmed to Second Circuit

by Jonathan H. Adler

Today the Senate confirmed Yale University deputy general counsel Susan Carney to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.  The vote was 71-28.  As BLT reports, some Republicans opposed her confirmation due to concerns about her lack of appellate or trial experience.  Carney has never argued a case before an appellate court and was rated Majority Qualified/Minority Unqualified by the ABA.
