New bankruptcy judge takes office

Keith L. Phillips has taken the oath of office as the newest U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Phillips, a veteran Richmond bankruptcy lawyer, was appointed in April to take the bench seat vacated by the retirement of Judge Douglas O. Tice Jr. Tice officially retired June 30 and is serving as a recalled judge for a six-month term.

Phillips was sworn in Monday by U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson. A more formal investiture ceremony will be scheduled for a later date, according to the bankruptcy court.
