Susan Carney Confirmed By Senate for U.S. Court of Appeals

In a 71-28 Senate vote, Susan Carney has been confirmed to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals. The opposition to Carney in the Senate was confined to the Senate’s conservatives.

On January 5, 2011 President Obama renominated Susan Carney to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Carney is unqualified to serve as an appeals court judge. She has never tried a case to conclusion, she has rarely examined witnesses, and she has never even argued a case before an appeals court. Even the American Bar Association gave her a lackluster rating of Substantial Majority Qualified, Minority Unqualified.
