Three new candidates in 8th Subcircuit

Candidates filing for judicial vacancies in the 8th Judicial Subcircuit were Thomas N. Osran (for the Chiola vacancy), Ellis B. Levin (for the Cole vacancy), and Judge Nicholas Geanopoulos (for the Durkin Roy vacancy).

Osran, an Illinois attorney since 1990, works for the Park Ridge firm of Judge, James & Kujawa LLC. He is a former Chicago Assistant Corporation Counsel. Levin has been an Illinois attorney since 1973 and is a former state legislator.

Judge Geanopoulos was appointed by the Supreme Court to a countywide vacancy in 2008. He did not run in the 2010 primary for the vacancy to which he was appointed but was recalled to judicial service when the initial appointment expired. Geanopoulos was a Cook County assistant state's attorney from 1983 to 1992. He went to work for the Vrdolyak Law Group LLC for four years after that, leaving to set up a solo practice in 2006. I did find a campaign website for Judge Geanopoulos, but it is under construction. I'll link it when it goes online.
