What others have said about Hon. Kimberly J. Mueller


Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: 22036
Rating:Not Rated
Came to the bench with no prior litigation experience, and it shows in her rulings. Very friendly and professional, but inept.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 13118
Rating:Not Rated
Excellent, respectful demeanor that reflects her prior experience and keen understanding of the difficulties that can and often do arise in a civil litigation practice. Extremely smart and brings some much needed practical experince and horsepower to the Eastern District bench. Not, thankfully, a former prosecutor from the US Attorneys office. Opinions are well written and reasoned, and reflect a great deal of respect for existing precedent. The best appointment since Larry Karlton.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 13087
Has the best demeanor of all of the judges on the Eastern District. Very slow, methodical, friendly, curteous, and smart. Excellent appointment.
