Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Brian Boatright on Aug. 26 appointed Judge Julie Hoskins to serve as chief judge of the 19th Judicial District, which includes Weld County. Hoskins replaces Chief Judge James Hartmann, who will retire on Oct. 1.

Hoskins was appointed to the district court in 2007. Before her appointment, Hoskins served as a Weld County judge for two years and before that worked as a district court magistrate for two years, according to the announcement.

“I have every confidence that Judge Hoskins will be a successful leader, and I look forward to working with her in this new role,” Boatright said in a statement.

As chief judge, Hoskins will serve as the administrative head of the 19th Judicial District and will be responsible for appointing the court executive, chief probation officer and clerk of court, assisting in the personnel, financial and case-management duties of the district and seeing the business of the courts is conducted efficiently and effectively.
