Jefferson Circuit Judge Kathleen Voor Montano Passes Away.

April 21, 2008

I was just told that Judge Kathleen Voor Montano passed away this morning after battling an unsuspected illness.  She was 45 and is survived by her husband and four teenage children.  I had the pleasure of trying a case in front of Judge Montano with several fine Louisville attorneys.  I always found her to be extremely smart, thoughtful, and well tempered.  In short, the perfect judge.  She was a graduate of the University of Louisville Law School and to my understanding was well liked and respected by her peers.  My condolences to her family and to the local legal community at the loss of such a fine person, who we were fortunate to have as a judge.

I will pass on information and links to articles as they become available.

    Sad news. My daughter is a classmate of Therese at Mercy, and just called me sobbing with the news. Our prayers are with the Montano family and friends, of which there are many.
