Shocked by the other comments. I’ve found Judge Jennings to be a very fair-minded judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Disagree with previous comment. She's not on par with with your least intelligent law professor. Think, instead, of your best middle school teacher.

Think of the least intelligent professor you had in law school. That's Judge Jennings.

She's no legal genius, but she's nice enough. I know that's not high praise for a federal judge, but I'll take ignorant but nice over ignorant and mean.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

To say Judge Jennings is a political hack would be a compliment. She (or her clerk) doesn't understand basic principles of constitutional law. Worse than that, from a judicial perspective, she (or her clerk) is an inept writer. She'll never make it to the Sixth Circuit, no matter who's president. I'd say she'd make a better magistrate judge, but that would be an insult to magistrate judges, like the exceptional Magistrate Judge Colin Lindsay. Of all the people in the Commonwealth to be appointed a federal judge in Kentucky, Judge Jennings is a joke. I love Mitch, but this judge is an idiot.
