Circuit Judge Joseph Condon plans to retire when his term is up in December.
His replacement is selected by our Illinois Supreme Court Justice Robert Thomas.
That person will be current Associate Court Judge Judge Michael W. Feetterer.
I asked Judge Feetterer what type of cases he handled when I met him at McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi’s fund raiser last Thursday.
He rattled off so many different areas, I asked if he could be characterized as “a utility player.”
The good-humored Feetterer, with beaming lady beside him, allowed as how that might describe his role in the Court system.
With Associate Judge Marty Zopp’s resignation, that will mean two slots are open for Associate Judges.
Those slots are filled by a vote of all the elected Circuit Court Judges. Lawyers apply for the appointments.
The current elected Judges are
- Michael T. Caldwell
- Michael J. Chmiel
- Joseph P. Condon
- Gordon E. Graham
- Maureen P. McIntyre
- Sharon Prather
- Michael J. Sullivan
- Charles P. Weech
