IWIRC Celebrates Female Judges

In conjunction with the 34th Annual Midwestern Bankruptcy Institute & Professional Development Workshop on October 16, the IWIRC-Midwest Network hosted a dinner to celebrate several female judges at Lidia’s Restaurant in Kansas City. Thirty-five women attended this festive inaugural event for the Midwest Network, including these honored judges:


  • Judge Janice Karlin- Kansas
  • Judge Anita Shodeen- Southern District of Iowa
  • Judge Hannah Blumenstiel- Northern District of California
  • Judge Lee  Jackwig- Southern District of Iowa
  • Judge Cynthia Norton- Western District of Missouri
  • Judge Kathy Surratt-States- Eastern District of Missouri 


The event drew members from various cities throughout the Midwest Network – Kansas City, Missouri; Overland Park, Kansas; St. Louis, Missouri and Sioux Falls, Iowa.  In addition, the Midwest Network was thrilled to have members from the Florida, Georgia and Southern California Networks join the party.

Such a good time was had by all that the Midwest Network is already planning how to capitalize on this successful event in 2015!
