Judge Montano’s Passing; Courts Closed On Friday

Through her family law private practice and during her tenure as a Jefferson County Family Court judge, most Louisville family law attorneys knew and loved Judge Kathleen Voor Montano. Her death at age 46 is heartbreaking.

All Jefferson County Court dockets except the Family Court Emergency Docket are cancelled on Friday, April 25, 2008 so that the judges can attend Judge Montano’s funeral at 11:00 a.m. The Emergency Docket for Family Court, all divisions, will be held in Family Court 8 at 1:00 p.m. A senior judge from out of county will be covering that docket.

Judicial funerals in this state are respectful pagentries honoring judicial service with all living past and present judges, in black robes, filing in together. Following Justice McAnulty’s funeral just a few months ago, we are not ready for another, especially not for a youthful jurist with such promise.
