As both the Trib and AP noted, Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow returned to work Tuesday, sitting on the bench for the first time since the murder of her husband and mother this winter. In a follow-up interview with the New York Times, Lefkow says she felt good to be back in court, with her assistant commenting, "It was almost just like a typical day in the office." The judge will keep an irregular, unannounced schedule for the next few months and will resume full-time service in the fall.
