Patrick Stanton campaign website launched

Supporters of Judge Patrick Stanton's bid to retain his 3rd Subcircuit seat have established a campaign website for their candidate. That's a link to the site in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

The Illinois Supreme Court appointed Stanton to the Delehanty vacancy in the 3rd Subcircuit at the beginning of this year. Prior to appointment, Stanton was a member of Dykema Gossett, serving as managing partner of the firm's Chicago office and, according to his campaign biography, head of Dykema's firm-wide Business Litigation practice group.

Stanton has been licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1993. According to the campaign biography, after graduating from Loyola University Law School, Stanton began his legal career with Jones Day, leaving that position to become a law clerk to U.S. District Court Judge George Marovich. After completing his clerkship, Stanton joined the firm of Schwartz Cooper, rising to partner in that firm and serving on its executive committee. He joined Dykema in 2008.

The campaign biography emphasizes Stanton's deep roots in the Beverly neighborhood on Chicago's Southwest Side. A graduate of Christ the King School, Stanton still lives in the parish with his wife and their five children. He serves on the Parish Pastoral Council, coaching basketball at the school and baseball for the Ridge Beverly Baseball program. He also attended Quigley South High School and the University of Notre Dame, according to the campaign biography.
