Lindsay Hugé campaign website launched

Assistant Public Defender Lindsay Hugé has announced plans to seek a judicial seat in the 8th Subcircuit. That's a link to the candidate'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 bio, 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.

His campaign bio also notes that Hugé has also served on the boards of the City Lit Theater and the Cliff Dwellers Club. He has also been active in the Chicago Bar Association (past Chair of Law & Literature committee), the Advocates Society, the Constitutional Rights Foundation Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Organization of American Historians, the Chicago History Museum, the American Motorcycle Association, the Chicago Jazz Institute, and Steppenwolf Theater.

Hugé announced an intention to seek a judicial post in the 2016 primary season, but folded his campaign without filing.
