Daniel J. Kubasiak appointed to Egan vacancy

The Illinois Supreme Court has appointed Chicago attorney Daniel J. Kubasiak to the Cook County Circuit Court vacancy created by the recent retirement of Judge James D. Egan. Kubasiak's appointment is effective November 30 and runs to December 1, 2014.

A 1981 graduate of Loyola University School of Law, Kubasiak served as the First Deputy Comptroller and First Assistant Budget Director of the City of Chicago from 1974-1981. He was Chief Administrative Officer for the Chicago City Council Committee on Finance from 1983 to 1987 and counsel for the Illinois State Treasurer from 1987 to 1994. Kubasiak was a founding partner of Kubasiak, Fylstra, Thorpe & Rotunno, P.C., the firm where he was practicing at the time of his appointment.

NB: Yes, Judge Egan, the judge whose vacancy will be filled by Mr. Kubasiak's appointment, is on the November retention ballot, but only due to a paperwork snafu. Because he had planned to retire, Judge Egan did not participate in any of the bar associations' screening processes.
