PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - U.S. District Judge Mary Lisi in Providence is planning to retire from full-time service, but will continue to hear cases part-time under senior judge status.

Federal court officials announced Friday that Lisi will retire Oct. 1 and assume senior status, which will create an opening for a judge.

Lisi oversaw high-profile cases including the corruption trials of a former hospital chief executive and two former CVS executives, and a $20 million civil rights lawsuit against Providence police over the fatal shooting of a black officer by two white colleagues.

She also oversaw the guilty pleas of several people accused in a Navy kickback scheme.

Lisi was the court’s chief judge from 2006 to 2013. She was nominated to the bench by President Bill Clinton and received her commission in 1994.
