Walking into the courthouse today I ran into an acquaintance of mine who works within the court system. During our chat I learned that Judge John Siefert, who is currently presiding over the Small Claims Division (which includes all eviction actions) in Milwaukee County, will be rotating to a different calandar come August 1st.
Judge Jane Carroll will be replacing Judge Siefert as the Small Claims judge. Judge Carroll is currently presiding at Children’s Court in Wauwatosa. She is a former District Attorney and has not previously been a judge in the Small Claims Division.
