I asked the judge a question about her calculation speedy trial time (section 30.30)and she laughed at me and mocked me in front of the courtroom and my client. There happens to be a split in the local courthouses on this narrow issue of law; but nontheless, her behavior was entirely unprofessional.

Not quite fair with her staff . . . a bit overbearing. Lots of QUIRKY ways and more about a JURY than anyone else. Oh well, at least it's quiet in the courtroom.

Anonymus, for now.

Very smart with a wry sense of humor, Judge Kluewer gives everyone an equal chance. Prosecutors like her and defense counsel respect her. A little more conservative than she likes to believe, she will do her homework. She respects attorneys who are prepared and definitely reads what is offered to her. She is sharp and controls the courtroom without being overbearing. She is good to her juries. She does get cranky every now and again but it is generally a good experience before a prepared and active bench.

Very fair and evenhanded. She looked out for the welfare of all who came before her, but suffered no fools.
