Campaign website set up for Judge James L. Kaplan

A campaign website has been established for Judge James L. Kaplan, candidate for the 12th Subcircuit vacancy to which he was appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court. That's a link to the campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Judge Kaplan was appointed to the 12th Subcircuit vacancy in August 2012. At the time of that 2012 appointment, Judge Kaplan was serving pursuant to an appointment to an 8th Subcircuit vacancy.

At the time of his initial appointment to the bench, in 2010, Kaplan was of counsel to the Law Offices of Sheldon Sorosky, Ltd. (f/k/a Kaplan & Sorosky, Ltd.). Kaplan served a member of the Illinois Board of Higher Education from 1999 until early 2007. He was IBHE Chairman from 2003-2007. Kaplan also served as a Judge of the Illinois Court of Claims before being appointed to the Circuit Court. A 1971 graduate of the Chicago-Kent College of Law, Kaplan served on the school's Board of Overseers from 2004-12. He is currently a member of the Board of Trustees of St. Patrick's High School in Chicago.
