Overview

In May 2011, Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson sent a letter to the Senate urging Senators to block the confirmation of Susan Carney from becoming a judge on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

On Jan. 15, 2011, Barack Obama nominated for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, Susan Carney, Deputy General Counsel for Yale University. She has been voted out of the Judiciary Committee, and currently is awaiting full Senate consideration. Unfortunately, as with other Obama nominees, serious questions have been raised about Susan Carney’s lack of integrity. The allegations arise from Carney’s tenure at Yale University, and call into question both her judgment as an attorney and her temperament to serve as a federal judge.


It would be reasonable for Senators to question Carney about why it took a U.S. Attorney enforcing a U.S.-Korean treaty on cooperation in criminal matters to discover that, indeed, Yale University had confirmed that Shin had received the degree (see page 98 for Yale’s reply to the subpoena). It would be equally reasonable to question whether Yale University knew all along that it had sent the fax to Dongguk confirming the degree, and whether it was, with Carney’s knowledge, covering this fact up to salvage its own reputation.

After more than four months of Yale dragging its feet, Carney finally admitted that the University had indeed confirmed that Shin received the degree. She claimed that she had “inadvertently provided one piece of incorrect information” and that the confirmation had only been sent by an associate dean “in the rush of business”.



Shin was released from jail in 2009 and has published a memoir detailing the experiences that led to her conviction. Now Shin claims a conspiracy.
