Sevierville attorney Cynthia Richardson Wyrick was named a federal magistrate judge on Tuesday. The appointment was announced by Chief Judge Pamela L. Reeves of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. Wyrick will fill a vacancy created when former magistrate judge Clifton L. Corker was appointed as U.S. district judge on July 26. The position serves the court’s Northeastern Division, which is based in the federal courthouse in Greeneville. Reeves will administer the oath of office to Wyrick in an informal ceremony at the Greeneville courthouse on Sept. 30. A formal investiture will be scheduled for a later date. Magistrate judges are appointed by the district judges to eight-year terms and are eligible for reappointment. Wyrick currently works for the law firm of Ogle, Wyrick & Associates.
