Judge Kuehn is a great judge. She is fair, patient, knowledgeable and has a good work ethic. She is human and no one gets it right 100% of the time but she does her job and if she doesn't know the law she learns it. She does her homework and reads the briefs carefully before ruling. Perhaps most importantly she is not afraid to make a ruling, which keeps cases moving.

This judge absolutely does not know how to conduct a trial, or how to throw out mistrials when one happens in a courtroom.

She is an excellent judge. She holds to a strict code of ethics. She is professional, and cares about her job, and takes her position as a district judge very seriously.

For all of you posting about me: I have read your reviews of me, and I am very disappointed. I am disappointed in myself if that is the perception you have of me. Your allegations are incorrect and very hurtful. If you would like to come and discuss them with me, instead of posting them on the Internet, it will obviously help me to improve as a judge. If you don't feel comfortable doing so, I will consider what your perception is of me to make sure that I work to correct that perception. All judges need to know how to improve, and don't get feedback because lawyers are afraid they will be ruled against after the comment, which is untrue with me, and unfortunate, because feedback is important. I again appreciate knowing that you feel so strongly about how horrid I am as to post things on the Internet. I cannot learn without knowing.

Sincerely,

Judge Kuehn.

She is by far the worst judge in Tulsa County. She is inappropriate with lawyers, picks sides early and her decisions have nothing to do with the law or the facts. I have had numerous cases in her court. She does not prepare or read the briefs -- instead she goes with her gut (and usually the most handsome male lawyer). She is friendly and courteous and generally respectful of attorneys, but then gossips with other lawyers about them and has inappropriate ex parte meetings on a regular basis. She is biased towards the big companies and large firms, and in particular insurance companies. At last count, she had 18 writs filed against her in her first few years on bench!

Judge Kuehn is very personable, and lawyers like her. However, she tends to make decisions without deep analysis of the issues or reviewing the law. She has entered incorrect and/or inappropriate rulings as a result.

If you represent a bank, run for your life. The Rules of Civil Procedure have no part in her courtroom.

Very young. Not very well thought of or respected by her peers. Easily influenced politically. Republican views.

It's obvious the last poster just got a bad opinion from her. She is always prepared, reads her cases and actually makes decisions! Judges get appealed, so what. She also supports young law students by offering them a chance to review and listen to court proceedings. Guess what- federal and higher State Court judges all have others write their opinions.

She is completely Bias and has had 18 writs against her! Some judges go their whole career and never have a complaint. she doesn't read her pleadings her interns do. She decides a case very early on and that's it. She changes her mind and reverses her decisions, she is off the wall and is a very inexperienced judge. She makes up the law as she goes along, She is all for large firms. She is Terrible about talking off the record with both sides. Has no code of conduct. Completely unfair.

I feel she is bright, witty, makes lawyers feel welcome in her court room and does her homework. She is a comer in my book.

Trial attorneys had some measure of reluctance relative to her, as she came from the D.A.'s office. She has proven herself to be a tremendous judge, fair and impartial. Nothing but good things to say about her.
