A magistrate judge’s duties are demanding and wide-ranging, such as: (1) conducting preliminary proceedings in criminal cases; (2) managing trial and disposition of misdemeanor cases; (3) conducting pretrial matters and evidentiary proceedings on referral from a district judge; and (4) trying civil cases upon consent of the litigants. A United States magistrate judge’s authority is set forth in 28 U.S.C. § 636.
To be qualified for magistrate judge appointment, an applicant must be, and have been for at least five years, a member in good standing of the bar of the highest court of a state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Territory of Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, or the Virgin Islands of the United States, and have been engaged in the active practice of law for at least five years.

The selected individual must comply with the financial disclosure requirements pursuant to the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, Pub. L.

The Panel and the Court will duly consider all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, age, gender, religion, national origin, or disability status. When the court system reflects the community’s racial, ethnic, and gender diversity, it heightens the community’s belief that that the court dispenses justice.
