Financial Fraud Law

From Financial Fraud Prosecutor To Sotomayor’s Ex-Seat? Could Be…

 Raymond J. Lohier, chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York, will fill the vacancy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that was created when Sonia Sotomayor was named to the U.S. Supreme Court, at least if N.Y. Senator Charles Schumer has his way. Schumer is pushing for Lohier to be appointed to the seat.

Lohier, according to Schumer, “is on the front lines of the war against financial fraud, which is currently one of the most important missions of the Department of Justice.” Schumer also notes that, “as a proud Haitian American, [Lohier] is a candidate who would enhance the diversity of the federal bench.”
