Who sits where -- updated edition

Updated 6/25/13 to add the Sterba vacancy.

Updated 6/21/13 to add the Felton vacancy. I apologize for the omission.

This is an update of a post that first appeared in March.

What follows is not a comprehensive list of Cook County judicial vacancies, but rather a list of vacancies that have been filled by Supreme Court appointment. There may be (and often are) vacancies which the Supreme Court has not filled. There will be additional vacancies, and additional appointments between now and late fall when the Illinois State Board of Elections posts an authoritative list of judicial vacancies in anticipation of the 2014 primary.

As always, all errors or omissions in this list are mine alone and I am grateful for additions and corrections provided.

Dear Friend,

Electing qualified and fair-minded judges to the bench is one of the most important roles of the electorate. Please join me in supporting such a candidate: Judge Cynthia Y. Cobbs.

Judge Cynthia Y. Cobbs was the first woman and first African-American to serve as Director of the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts. In September, 2011, she was unanimously appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the entrusted position of Circuit Court Judge, where she has served with distinction. Through her deeds, she has demonstrated her commitment to public service, and her willingness to work tirelessly to enhance the fair administration of justice within our courts. Now, she is running for election to continue doing a job she loves, as a judge on the Circuit Court of Cook County.

Join me in supporting the candidacy of Judge Cynthia Y. Cobbs tomorrow evening from 5:30 – 7:30, at a fundraising event at the Rosebud La Rosetta Restaurant, 70 West Madison Street, Chicago, IL.

Your support of Judge Cynthia Y. Cobbs’ candidacy will help her deliver her message to the electorate throughout Cook County as she works toward being elected in the March 18, 2014 primary election.
