    U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen Klein has been on the federal bench for 30 years. Magistrate judges typically handle initial appearances and detention hearings for defendants, as well as settlement conferences.
    Klein says she will step down in January.
    U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson says Klein is a nationally recognized expert in mediation and settlement who has trained hundreds of judges in those techniques.
