Oak Park solo appointed to 11th Subcircuit vacancy

The Illinois Supreme Court yesterday announced the appointment of Oak Park solo practitioner William B. Sullivan to the Susan F. Zwick vacancy in the 11th Judicial Subcircuit. The appointment is effective June 11 and terminates on December 5, 2016.

The Supreme Court appointed Sullivan pursuant to the recommendation of Justice Mary Jane Theis, after screening of applications for the vacancy by her bi-partisan judicial screening committee.

The Supreme Court's press release notes Sullivan's practice experience in a "variety of civil matters including real estate, bank and business transactions, estate planning, landlord-tenant disputes and probate and trust administration." Sullivan has also served as an adjunct professor at his alma mater, De Paul University Law School (he's a 1992 graduate), as a hearing officer for the Illinois State Board of Elections, and was twice elected President of the Cicero Township Trustees of Schools, according to the Supreme Court.

In addition to pro bono work assisting pro se litigants in small claims matters, Sullivan has served as president of the Oak Park-River Forest High School Alumni Association; vice-president of the Oak Park Area Arts Council; president of the Oak Park Huskies Baseball Club; and as a member of the Board of Directors of L'Arche Chicago, a not-for-profit social services organization; and the Oak Park Township Senior Services Committee. Sullivan is a cantor and lector at St. Catherine of Siena-St. Lucy Parish, according to the Supreme Court.

And by "bi-partisan committee" Justice Theis means "Don Harmon."
