Black History Month – Feb. 22: Loretta Elizabeth Lynch

In 1999, President Bill Clinton nominated Lynch to serve as the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. In a trial that received national attention, she helped win convictions of two white New York City police officers who severely beat and sexually assaulted Haitian immigrant Abner Louima.

In 2010, President Barack Obama nominated Lynch to serve again as United States Attorney for the New York Eastern District.  Some of her work involved high profile cases of political corruption. She successfully prosecuted a New York City councilman and a legislator in Nassau County on bribery charges and won the conviction of a former New York state senator who embezzled millions of dollars from a medical clinic in his district. Lynch’s office also handled terrorism cases. She secured the imprisonment of terrorists who plotted to bomb the New York Federal Reserve Bank and the New York subway system.

On November 28, 2014, President Obama nominated Lynch for the position of United States Attorney General. She was confirmed by the Judiciary Committee of the United States Senate and approved by the Senate by a vote of 56 to 43 on April 3, 2015, the first African American female Attorney General and the second woman to hold the office.
