Huff named judge in Douglas County
Here is an article from the LJWorld stating that Barbara Kay Huff will be the newest judge in Douglas County. Kay has been a criminal defense lawyer for a number of years, including stops at the Johnson County PD's Office, the Appellate Defender Office, and as a Clinical Professor at KU Law. According to the article, Kay has been in private practice in Lawrence since 1991. She will replace Judge Jean Shepherd, who is retiring in January.
I have gotten to know Kay over the last year, as her office is three doors down from mine. I can whole-heartedly say that I expect her to be an excellent judge. She is wicked smart, and she is very dedicated to the law. Congratulations, Kay.
