Nichole C. Patton appointed to 15th Subcircuit vacancy

The Illinois Supreme Court today appointed Assistant State's Attorney Nichole C. Patton to the 15th Subcircuit vacancy created by the elevation of Judge John C. Griffin to the Appellate Court.

Patton's appointment is effective June 13 and terminates December 7, 2020.

Patton has previously sought judicial office. She applied for associate judge in 2017. She sought Democratic Party slating for a 2016 judicial bid, opting not to run after being named a fourth alternate. Patton withdrew from an Appellate Court bid in the 2014 primary.

A countywide candidate in 2012, Patton also sought a 15th Subcircuit vacancy in 2010. Ironically, the winning candidate in that 2010 race was John C. Griffin.
