Yehuda P. Lebovits appointed to Otaka vacancy

Yehuda P. Lebovits, director of the Cook County Expedited Child Support Program, and a Lincolnwood village trustee, has been appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to fill the 9th Subcircuit vacancy created by the recent death of Judge Sandra R. Otaka. Judge Otaka was the first Asian American elected to the Cook County bench.

A lawyer since 1983, Lebovits was among the finalists for the Associate Judge vacancies filled in 2007. A June 2008 Chicago Daily Law Bulletin article notes that Lebovits also served as financial secretary of the Decalogue Society of Lawyers.

The Expedited Child Support Program is a collaboration between the State of Illinois, Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Cook County State's Attorney and the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County.

Lebovits' appointment is effective June 25 and runs through December 6, 2010.
