John Roemer, retired judge killed in attack, remembered for devotion

Antonio G Ginting

The retired Juneau County judge who was killed Friday in what authorities called an attack related to the judicial system “cared deeply” about doing his job well, was fair to all and treated everyone in his courtroom with respect, community members said.

John Roemer, 68, was a “brilliant legal scholar who devoted an incredible amount of time to doing the right thing,” said Scott Southworth, who was Juneau County district attorney from 2005 to 2013.

“I learned a great deal from him,” he said.

A 56-year-old man reportedly shot him in his home “based on some sort of court case or court cases,” Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said at a news conference Friday. The “targeted act” included other planned victims, Kaul said, although the attorney general did not identify them.
