KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Former Kansas Attorney General Steve Six has joined a law firm in Kansas City, Mo., as a partner.
The firm of Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP announced Wednesday that Six will work in its commercial litigation, public client and personal injury practices.
Six is a former district court judge in Douglas County, Kan. He was appointed attorney general in January 2008 by then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius after Paul Morrison resigned amid a sex scandal.
Last year, Six was the Democratic nominee for a full term as attorney general but lost to Republican Derek Schmidt.
President Barack Obama nominated Six for a seat on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in March. But the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee never considered his nomination, deferring to opposition from his home-state Republican senators, Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran.
