Campaign website goes live for Judge John A. O'Meara

A campaign website has been established in furtherance of Judge John A. O'Meara's bid to hold onto the 4th Subcircuit seat to which he was appointed late last year. That's a link to the website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

According to ARDC, O'Meara has been licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1995. O'Meara's campaign biography notes that his legal career actually began the year before that: "Under authority granted by Supreme Court Rule 711, in his last year at The John Marshall Law School, [O'Meara] prosecuted traffic and business offenses for" the Corporation Counsel's Office, "conducting hundreds of bench trials."

After graduation, O'Meara stayed with the City of Chicago as an Assistant Corporation Counsel before moving to a "private practice in civil litigation defense successfully defending individuals, companies, municipalities, and Fortune 500 corporations in complex tort litigation." O'Meara joined Curcio Law Offices in 2001, according to the campaign biography, becoming a partner in the firm soon thereafter. With Curcio's office, according to the firm biography, O'Meara represented "victims of injury or wrongful death due to medical malpractice, product liability or other torts." O'Meara was practicing with Curcio's office at the time of his appointment to the bench.

O'Meara and his wife, Barbara, are the parents of four children. The campaign also has a Facebook page and a Twitter handle (I think that's the right way to say it...).
