BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A Missoula attorney has been named U.S. bankruptcy judge for Montana.

The Montana Standard reported Saturday (https://bit.ly/2kjGFN3 ) that Benjamin Phillip Hursh will serve a 14-year term starting Feb. 1. A formal appointment ceremony will be held Feb. 3 in Butte.

Hursh, a partner in the Missoula office of Crowley Fleck PLLP since 2011, will fill a vacancy resulting from the retirement of Chief Bankruptcy Judge Ralph B. Kirscher, who had served on the court since 1999.

He will keep his chambers in Butte.
