I have been before Judge Bedinghaus on many occasions and have found her to be totally professional, knowledgeable, and even-tempered. She doesn't suffer fools lightly. However, we are better lawyers because of her. She is also very funny by the way. When I knew her practice background, I was afraid she would be totally pro-prosecution, but she has shown herself to be fair and impartial. I know she has given the prosecution headaches from time to time by requiring them to be prepared. They even had to nolle pros some cases - practically unheard of in her divison previously. Come on guys, let's be honest and not just bitter because we didn't get our way all the time like with some other judges. She deserved to be elected. She is doing a nice job.

Judge Bedinghaus: "It's not what you know but who you know." She is always partial to the government and crosses the line of judicial temperance excessively.
