Albert Diaz '88 will join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, which is based in Richmond, Va., and Raymond Lohier Jr. '91 will serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in New York.

Confirmed on December 18 (Diaz) and 19 (Lohier), the two took very different paths to the federal bench. Diaz, who was raised in Brooklyn, spent 25 years in the Marines, where he was a prosecutor, defense attorney, and judge. He then worked as a litigation associate for Hunton & Williams, and most recently has been a special superior court judge for the North Carolina Business Court in Charlotte, North Carolina. Lohier, born in Haiti, began his legal career as an associate at Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton. He then joined the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan, ultimately becoming chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force.
