Senate confirms new judge for Eastern Washington District Court

By From staff reports

The U.S. Senate on Wednesday confirmed a Wenatchee attorney as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington.

Stanley Allen Bastian, 56, will fill a judgeship vacant since June 7, 2012, when Judge Edward Shea assumed senior status, a news release from Ninth Circuit said. One vacancy remains to be filled on the court.

Bastian has been the managing partner since 2012 at the law firm of Jeffers, Danielson, Sonn & Aylward, where his practice focuses on civil employment matters. He joined the firm in 1988. He has also worked as an assistant city attorney and criminal prosecutor for the Seattle City Attorney’s Office and was president of the State Bar Association from 2007 to 2008, among other positions.

Bastian was born in Seattle, raised in Portland and received his law degree from the University of Washington.
