Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a nomination hearing for Eunice C. Lee, who was nominated by President Biden for the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, among other nominees.
Lee was born in 1970 on a U.S. Air Force base in Wiesbaden, Germany. She graduated summa cum laude from Ohio State University in 1993 and graduated from Yale Law School in 1996.* Prior to graduating from law school, Lee worked as a research assistant for Flemming L. Norcott, Jr., a justice on the Connecticut Supreme Court, and interned at the Civil Division of the Justice Department as well as two left-wing dark-money groups, People for the American Way and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
Following her law school graduation, she clerked for two federal judges, Susan J. Dlott in the Southern District of Ohio and Eric L. Clay on the Sixth Circuit.
