Judge Lefkow Returns to Bench After Her Family's February Slaying

From CNN.com: Chicago, IL (AP): U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow "has made a low-key return to the bench, just months after the murders of her husband and mother by a disgruntled litigant.  (She)...vowed she would continue working despite the February 28 shootings at her Chicago home, committed by a man upset with her decision to dismiss his medical malpractice lawsuit. Bart Ross, an unemployed Chicago electrician, confessed to the murders in a suicide note.  Lefkow appeared relaxed in court where she presided over several routine civil cases Tuesday (July 12). She plans to work on a limited basis during the next several months before returning full time in the fall." Story... [Mark Godsey]
