Fleeson Gooing attorney Ryan Meyer has been named to a two-year term on the Bench-Bar Committee for the United States District Court for the District of Kansas.

The 18-member Bench-Bar Committee is made up of federal court judges and lawyers who practice in federal court. It has general advisory and liaison roles with respect to the operation of the court. The Committee provides a forum for the continuous study of the operating procedures of the court and serves as liaison among the court, its bar and the public. Among other things, the Committee studies, considers and recommends changes to the court’s local rules, promotes a continuing legal education program, and provides reports and recommendations as directed by the court.

Ryan is well-suited to serve on the Bench-Bar Committee. In addition to conducting a significant amount of his current practice in federal court, Ryan served a two-year federal clerkship with the Honorable J. Thomas Marten before joining Fleeson Gooing in 2012.

Ryan joins Fleeson Gooing attorney Bill Townsley on the committee. Bill is an ex officio member by virtue of his role as chair of the Kansas Bar Association Bench-Bar Committee.
