AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Former U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty II is in line to return to the state bench.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage has nominated him to serve as a Superior Court justice, a position he previously held. If confirmed, he’d serve on active retired status. That means he could be appointed to hear cases but wouldn’t be doing so regularly.

Delahanty was one of the U.S. attorneys abruptly fired by Republican Donald Trump. At the time, he was stranded out of state by a nor’easter and his email and iPhone were cut off.

Delahanty served for years as a Superior Court judge, including a stint as chief justice, after serving as state prosecutor, private attorney and also U.S. attorney under President Carter. He served another stint as U.S. attorney under President Obama.
