FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Fort Smith attorney Mark E. Ford has been selected to serve as the new federal magistrate in the court’s Western District and will preside over the Fort Smith and Harrison divisions beginning in January.

Ford will succeed Magistrate James R. Marschewski, who is retiring Jan. 2 with the completion of his eight-year term.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/13N2Pe6 ) that Ford has been a partner of the law firm Robertson, Beasley and Ford PLLC since 2009.

Since his appointment, he has taken “of counsel” status with the firm - which has been renamed Robertson, Beasley, Shipley and Redd PLLC- until he takes office.
