Between 1998 and 2002, she served as a prosecuting trial attorney for the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, conducting Prosecutor V. Kunarac et al. (mass rape in the Bosnian city of Foca) and Prosecutor v. Krnojelac (murder and torture of Bosnians held prisoner). She also helped to prosecute Slobodan Milosevic. Ms. Kuo has served as Acting Deputy Chief of the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division Criminal Section and Chief Hearing Officer at the New York Stock Exchange.
