Mary S. Trew appointed to 9th Subcircuit vacancy

Per email received, Mary Susan Trew has been appointed to a 9th Subcircuit vacancy on the Circuit Court of Cook County. Trew will fill the vacancy created by the 'retirement' of the Judge James R. Epstein ('retirement' being set out in quotes because Judge Epstein will take office as a justice of the Appellate Court in December). Trew's appointment is effective November 22 and will terminate December 3, 2012.

Trew was a candidate for the "A" vacancy in the 9th Subcircuit in the 2010 primary. Although unsuccessful in that effort, Trew won the endorsement of the Chicago Sun-Times as well as favorable recommendations from each of the evaluating bar associations in the course of the campaign. Trew is currently the Executive Director of the Domestic Violence Legal Clinic of Chicago.
