ROANOKE, Va. — Court officials say a longtime federal judge in Virginia has died. The Roanoke Times reports that Senior U.S. District Judge Glen E. Conrad was 71 when he died on Thursday.
A statement posted Friday on the website for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia didn’t specify Conrad’s cause of death.
Conrad served as a federal magistrate judge for more than 27 years before then-President George W. Bush nominated him for his district court judge’s seat in 2003.
He continued to hear cases after taking senior status in December 2017.
