BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge attorney Erin Wilder-Doomes has been sworn in as the newest federal magistrate judge for the Middle District of Louisiana.

Wilder-Doomes replaces U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephen Riedlinger, who retired last month after serving in that position since 1986.

The Advocate reports (bit.ly/1ZPs47g) Wilder-Doomes was previously a member of the Baton Rouge law firm of Stewart Robbins & Brown, where she specialized in civil litigation.

A magistrate judge’s duties include conducting most preliminary proceedings in criminal cases; trying and disposing of misdemeanor cases; conducting various pretrial matters and evidentiary proceedings at the direction of a district judge; and trying and disposing of civil cases with the consent of the litigants.
