(DENVER) – Gov. Bill Owens today announced the appointment of Kevin L. Hoyer of Akron to the District Court for the 13th Judicial District (Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Yuma, Kit Carson, and Washington counties). Hoyer is filling a vacancy caused by the retirement of the Honorable James Leh.
"Kevin Hoyer is a well respected and experienced lawyer and judge," said Owens. "With many years of experience in private practice and as a municipal judge, he is well suited to being a District Court Judge. I am confident that Hoyer will serve the people of Colorado well, and I am pleased to appoint him to District Court."
Hoyer has a broad range of legal experience as an attorney and judge. From 1980 to 1987, he served as assistant county attorney for Washington County and assistant town attorney for the Town of Akron. A member of the Colorado Bar Association and past president of the 13th Judicial District Bar Association, Hoyer has been a municipal judge for the cities of Yuma and Wray since 1988. He received both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Colorado.
The appointment is effective January 1, 2005. The initial term of office for a district court judge is a provisional term of two years, after which the incumbent must stand for retention to serve an additional six years. The annual salary for this position is $107,044.
