WASHINGTON (AP) - An attorney from Kansas City, Kansas, has been confirmed as a judge of the U.S. District Court in Kansas.

Sen. Jerry Moran said the Senate approved the appointment of Daniel Crabtree on Wednesday. He was nominated by President Barack Obama last August to succeed U.S. District Judge John Lungstrum, who took senior status.

Crabtree is a partner in the Kansas City law firm of Stinson Morrison Hecker. He joined the firm as an associate after receiving his law degree from the University of Kansas School in 1981. He also holds a bachelor’s degree from Ottawa University in Kansas.

Crabtree’s legal practice has included representation of businesses and government entities in complex civil litigation in federal and state courts.

He’s also the general counsel for the Kansas City Royals baseball team.
