Plenty Of Area Lawyers Seek Judge Seat

Posted by wlpo on December 28, 2010

The field to take over for retired Judge James Lanuti includes four lawyers from Ottawa.

Jeanne Fitzpatrick, Anita Kopko, Sheryl Kuzma and Joseph Navarro represent half the candidates to replace Lanuti.  The rest of the choices are Richard Black of Morris, Troy Holland of Mendota, Richard James Lannon of La Salle and Melissa Olivero of Peru.  The deadline to apply for the judge position was Thursday.

Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride will eventually recommend a candidate to the full Supreme Court.  If you comments about any of the eight candidates, you can send them by mail to the Administrative Office of Illinois Courts in Springfield.  The deadline to submit comments is January 24th.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
