Mason steps down; Coghlan appointed to Appellate Court

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Mary Anne Mason, who had been serving on the Appellate Court pursuant to Supreme Court appointment, will retire from judicial service Friday. David Thomas had a front page article on Justice Mason's retirement in the July 18 issue of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin (subscription required).

The Illinois Supreme Court has appointed Probate Division Presiding Judge Mary Ellen Coghlan to replace Justice Mason on the Appellate Court effective July 30.

Although she was serving on the Appellate Court, Mason's retirement will create a countywide vacancy on the Cook County Circuit Court.
