A new circuit judge in northern West Virginia is set to be sworn in.

A ceremony for James W. Courrier Jr. is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at the Mineral County Courthouse in Keyser.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin appointed Courrier in January to succeed the retiring Philip Jordan in the 21st Circuit, which covers Grant, Mineral and Tucker counties.

Courrier began his career in private practice in 1994 after graduating from the West Virginia University College of Law. He served 11 years as assistant prosecutor in Mineral County before becoming chief prosecutor seven years ago.
