Former US Attorney is now Spokane city attorney


The former U.S. Attorney for Eastern Washington has been appointed city attorney for Spokane.    

Mike Ormsby was confirmed Monday night to head Spokane City Hall's legal department.   

 The Spokesman-Review says the 4-3 confirmation vote by the City Council overcame objections about how he handled discrimination claims by a former employee and his involvement in securing taxpayer-funded bonds for a controversial downtown garage.    

Ormsby was named U.S. attorney by President Obama and was asked to resign after President Trump was elected. He has not been replaced yet.    

Ormsby is a Spokane native. He attended North Central High School and Gonzaga Univesity. His first day on the job is expected to be May 22nd.
