District Judge Lonny R. Suko to Take Senior Status

Friday, July 12, 2013

District Judge Lonny R. Suko of Yakima has given notice to the President and the Administrative Office of the United States Courts of his intent to transfer to senior status on November 1, 2013. While he will continue to perform substantial service as a senior judge in all court locations within the Eastern District of Washington, his departure from active status will open an Article III judicial position for appointment in Yakima. Washington's senators and regional congressional representatives have been advised of the opening to enable the appointment process to begin at an early date.
