Chief Judge Holderman announced the selection of Susan E. Cox as the Northern District’s newest magistrate judge, filing the vacancy created by Judge Levin’s retirement.  You can read the Northern District’s press release here.  Magistrate Judge Designate Cox has an impressive resume including a clerkship with District Judge Wayne R. Andersen, eight years as an AUSA, twenty four cases (civil and criminal) tried to a verdict, and, perhaps most important to Blog readers, patent infringement experience.  Congratulations Judge Cox.
