Judith C. Rice gets a head start on her judicial career

Former Chicago Revenue Director and Water Commissioner Judith C. (Judy) Rice will be sworn in as a Cook County Circuit Court Judge on Monday, October 6, according to an order entered yesterday by the Illinois Supreme Court.

Rice won the Democratic nomination for the Taylor vacancy in the 7th Subcircuit vacancy in the March primary. This is the vacancy to which she has now been appointed. She faces no opponent in November.

Judge Freddrenna M. Lyle had been assigned to that vacancy by the Illinois Supreme Court; in August, however, Judge Lyle was reassigned to a 5th Subcircuit vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Jane L. Stuart.
