Kristen Mix, first Coloradan to lead federal judges’ group, explains differences within profession
Kristen L. Mix likens the duties of federal magistrate judges to a restaurant menu, in which someone can experience a little bit of everything or a whole lot of one thing, depending on where they work.
“You learn about the whole menu, and you know that you’re probably going to be eating from certain parts of the menu more than others. But there never has been a situation where I thought, ‘Wow! That’s something I never knew was on the menu,’” she said.
