PHOENIX -- The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has announced the appointment of a new judge for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Arizona.

Officials said Brenda Kay Martin received the oath of office on Thursday. She will be based in Phoenix.

Martin fills the judgeship vacated by George B. Nielsen Jr., who will continue to serve the court in a limited capacity as a recalled judge.

The 49-year-old Martin has practiced law since 1990 and had been a partner in a Phoenix law firm since 2005.

She is a graduate of Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and is a native of Tacoma, Washington.
