Ozell Miller Trask (July 4, 1909 – May 5, 1984) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Wakita, Oklahoma, Trask received an A.B. from Washburn College in 1931 where he was a member of the Kansas Beta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta and initiated into Sagamore, Washburn's most exclusive honor society. Trask was a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship in 1929.[1] He received an LL.B. from Harvard Law School in 1934. He entered private practice in Kansas City, Missouri in 1934, eventually moving his practice to Phoenix, Arizona, where he continued until 1969.

On June 26, 1969, Trask was nominated by President Richard Nixon to a new seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit created by 82 Stat. 184. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on September 12, 1969, and received his commission on September 16, 1969. He assumed senior status on October 31, 1979, serving in that capacity until his death.
