In an order entered yesterday, the Illinois Supreme Court appointed Elizabeth A. Karkula to the countywide vacancy created by the recent passing of Judge Jean Prendergast Rooney.
The appointment is effective January 19 and will terminate on December 3, 2018.
Karkula did apply for Associate Judge in the current (still pending) class. At the time of her appointment, according to her LinkedIn profile, Karkula has provided "representation in complex and delicate anti-trust and securities cases, bolstered professional confidence for the firms and organizations I have represented, and provided integral process improvement increasing accuracy and efficiency across the board."
