Carl L. Rasch

Carl L. Rasch (May 8, 1866 February 2, 1961) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, Rasch received a Ph.B. from Cornell College in 1889 and an LL.B. from Chicago College of Law in 1890. He was in private practice in Helena, Montana from 1891 to the present. He was the United States Attorney for the District of Montana from 1902 to 1908.

On April 26, 1910, Rasch was nominated by President William H. Taft to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of Montana vacated by William H. Hunt. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on May 2, 1910, and received his commission the same day. Rasch served in that capacity for less than 18 months, resigning on October 15, 1911.

He returned to private practice in Helena from 1911 until his death in 1961, and from 1933 to 1938 was general counsel to the Western Life Insurance Company. He died in Helena, Montana.
