CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Ronald Pearson plans to retire when his term ends in October.

Pearson says in a Jan. 28 letter to bankruptcy lawyers and the public that he will not seek reappointment.

He has served as a bankruptcy judge since 1985. He also served as West Virginia treasurer from 1975 to 1976.

Pearson says his job has been rewarding and enjoyable because of what he calls “the high quality and standard of practice” maintained by attorneys in the Southern District. He says he hopes many of these attorneys will consider applying for the job.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, has posted a notice of vacancy for the position on its website, www.ca4.uscourts.gov .
