BATON ROUGE - U.S. District Judge James J. Brady, of Baton Rouge, has notified President Barack Obama that he will assume senior status at the end of this year.

By taking senior status, the 69-year-old Brady enables the president to nominate a third full-time judge to the Middle District of Louisiana, which has its headquarters in Baton Rouge.

The other judges are Chief U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson and U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick, sworn into office earlier this year.

Judges who take senior status are permitted to shoulder a reduced case load, but Brady says he doesn't intend to slow down.
