Mark J. Dinsmore took the oath today to become the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana’s newest magistrate judge. Magistrate Judge Dinsmore was sworn in by Chief Judge Richard L. Young at the Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse in Indianapolis.

Magistrate Judge Dinsmore replaces Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson, who was elevated to an Article III judgeship in June. He was born in Valparaiso and received his law degree from the University of Toledo College of Law. Before joining the court, he practiced at Barnes & Thornburg in Indianapolis. Magistrate Judge Dinsmore also served as a captain in the U.S. Army before attending law school.

The magistrate judge will have a formal investiture ceremony in the future, but the date has not been announced.
