Cheshire Resident Is Nominated to State Court Judgeship

Civil trial lawyer Robert Nastri Jr. has been nominated to a state Superior Court judgeship.

Cheshire Resident Is Nominated to State Court Judgeship
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has nominated Cheshire resident Robert Nastri Jr.
to serve as a state Superior Court judge.

The nomination was among more than a dozen Malloy announced on Friday, including two for the Appellate Court, require approval from the General Assembly.

Nastri is a partner with Tinley, Nastri, Renehan & Dost, LLP, in Waterbury. His practice includes civil trial law and general dispute resolution, including commercial litigation, employment discrimination and wrongful discharge claims, contract disputes, will contests, environmental claims, as well as the prosecution and defense of personal injury claims.

Before serving as an attorney, Nastri served as a municipal police officer. He received his bachelor's degree from Wesleyan University and his J.D. from University of Connecticut School of Law.

“I am proud and humbled that Governor Malloy has given me this opportunity to serve the people of Connecticut,” Nastri said.

“In selecting judicial nominees and reviewing the pool of candidates, I look to choose individuals with the experience, temperament and skills to be thoughtful, reasoned and fair jurists,” Malloy said. “It is a careful, meticulous process because we want to ensure that the men and women who sit on our bench will serve our state with distinction, fairness, competence, ethics, and above all, respect for the people of Connecticut. I am pleased to nominate these two outstanding judges for elevation to the appellate bench, and proud to nominate these 16 outstanding attorneys for appointment to the Superior Court.”

The 16 Superior Court nominations will fill approximately 26 vacancies that currently exist on that court, with additional vacancies on the court anticipated later this year. Malloy said that he does not intend on filling the remaining vacancies at this time.
