Manhattan attorney Grant Bannister has been selected to be the next District Court Judge, serving Riley and Clay counties.
Bannister has been a partner in the Knopp and Bannister law firm in Manhattan for 20 years, and will fill the seat left vacant by Judge David Stutzman who left the bench last June to accept a position with the Kansas Court of Appeals.
Bannister, a native of Hays, Kansas, received his law degree from the University of Kansas in 1997.  As an attorney, Bannister has engaged in general practice with an emphasis on litigation and business transactions.  He’s also served on several boards of directors in the Manhattan area, including Homecare and Hospice, Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity, Boys Scouts of America, and also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Kansas State University.  Bannister is also a member of the Board of Governors for the University of Kansas School of Law.
Bannister posted the news on his Facebook account this morning.
