LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A new U.S. magistrate judge has been named for the western district of Kentucky.

A statement from Chief Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr. says 51-year-old Colin H. Lindsay will assume the position on Jan. 1 after the retirement of Judge James D. Moyer.

A native of Morgantown, West Virginia, Lindsay received a political science degree from West Virginia University and a law degree from Emory University School of Law.

He has worked at Louisville law firms as an attorney, and he has served as an adjunct instructor at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and was president of the Louisville Bar Association in 2009. Lindsay has also been honored for his efforts to fight human trafficking.

He will be based in Louisville.
