Freddrenna M. Lyle appointed to 2nd Subcircuit vacany

The Illinois Supreme Court has appointed former 6th Ward Alderman Freddrenna M. Lyle to the Stuttley vacancy in Cook County's 2nd Judicial Subcircuit.

The appointment is effective December 16 and expires December 2, 2012. At the time of her appointment, Lyle maintained a law office on South Cottage Grove Avenue. She has also served as 6th Ward Democratic Committeeman.

According to an article by Hal Dardick posted November 29 on the Chicago Tribune website Lyle indicated she will not seek to hold this seat in the March primary, stating that she would be open to another appointment when this one expires.

That leaves two persons (so far) contesting for this seat in the March primary.

Carl B. Boyd filed nominating papers Monday for this vacancy. I can not find a dedicated campaign website for Mr. Boyd, although he has used Facebook pages in prior campaigns (Boyd sought the countywide Hayes vacancy in the 2010 primary and the "A" vacancy in the 2nd Subcircuit in 2006). An Illinois attorney since 1991, Boyd currently practices with the Chicago firm of Starks & Boyd, P.C..

The other declared 2nd Subcircuit candidate is Assistant Public Defender Toya T. Harvey. I could not find a campaign website for Harvey either, but ARDC confirms that she has been an Illinois attorney since 1995.
