Lindsay Hugé announces 2016 judicial bid

Lindsay Hugé, a veteran Assistant Public Defender, has announced his intent to run for the Cook County Circuit Court in the 2016 Democratic Primary. That's a link to Hugé's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog sidebar.

Hugé has been licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1989, and has been with the Public Defender's office throughout his career. According to his campaign website, Hugé also taught history at DePaul University from 2001 to 2003 and has taught law and history at Columbia College since 1998. While still teaching and practicing law, Hugé found time to earn a second M.A. in literature from DePaul in 2008 (he earned an M.A. in history from Loyola University Chicago in 2000) and an LLM in intellectual property from John Marshall Law School in 2014.

According to his campaign website, Hugé also serves on the boards of the Cliff Dwellers Club and the City Lit Theater.

Hugé resides in Uptown with his wife and son. He has launched his campaign with a $50,000 donation, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections.
