John S. Fotopoulos campaign website goes online

John S. Fotopoulos
A campaign website has now been established for John S. Fotopoulos, candidate for the 15th Subcircuit Doody vacancy on the Cook County Circuit Court Judge. That's a link to the candidate's website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Fotopoulos' website touts his Orland Park-based law practice in which he handles "plaintiff's personal injury, workers compensation claims, and criminal defense" matters. Fotopoulos also represented Judge Jim Ryan in the Appellate Court in Ryan's suit against Channel 32, the local Fox affiliate. The case, Ryan v. Fox TV Stations, Inc., 2012 IL App (1st) 120005, is noteworthy because it is one of the first cases to interpret the Illinois Citizen Participation Act (our anti-SLAPP statute), 735 ILCS 110/1, et seq.

Licensed in Illinois since 2000, Fotopoulos worked for Continental Bank as a regulatory analyst and then with Stone Container Corporation as a financial analyst before and during law school, according to his campaign website.
