KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A long-time Knox County judge has announced his intention to retire.

Judge Wheeler A. Rosenbalm, Circuit Court Judge for the Sixth Judicial District, will step down from the bench on Jan. 1, 2013.

"It has been a great pleasure and tremendous privilege for me to have served the people of Tennessee for the past 22 years," Judge Rosenbalm said in a letter to Gov. Bill Haslam.

Judge Rosenbalm has been a Circuit Court Judge since 1990.

Prior to joining the court, he was a partner with the Knoxville law firm of Frantz, McConnell & Seymour LLP.

He earned his law degree in 1964 from the University of Tennessee College of Law, where he also was an instructor and associate professor of law.

Rosenbalm is a member of the Knoxville Bar Association and a fellow in the Tennessee Bar Foundation and American College of Trial Lawyers.

He is co-author of Tennessee Construction Law and various articles and manuscripts.

Judge Rosenbalm said he plans to spend more time with his family during his retirement.

Gov. Haslam will appoint a judge to serve in Rosenbalm's place until the next election.
