Who's running for judge? Latest update

Chicago practitioner Steven G. Watkins is contemplating a run for judicial office. An attorney since 1991, Watkins has been very active in the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Materials on the Omega Psi Phi site indicate that Watkins concentrates his law practice in criminal defense, civil litigation, and real estate transactions; that he has served on the Cook County Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Committee; and that he serves as an Arbitrator in Cook County mandatory court-annexed arbitrations.

Bonita Coleman-John, who made a bid for a 1st Subcircuit seat in 2006, appears to be considering another election effort. I found a campaign website apparently under construction. Since there's no candidate information yet posted, I'll hold off on posting the link. A lawyer since 1992, Coleman-John has an office in the Chicago Loop with Bonita Coleman-John and Associates.

Concluding this roundup, Oak Lawn attorney Nicholas W. Karas also appears to be contemplating a bid for judicial office. Karas has been a lawyer since 2000.
