SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - 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.
