U.S. District Judge Charles P. “Tony” Sifton, a former assistant U.S. Attorney who served on the bench in New York for 30 year, has died of sarcoidosis, a lung disease, the Washington Post reported. He was 74.

Sifton served as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York in the 1960s and moved on to private practice before President Carter appointed him to the bench in 1977.
