To avoid financial disaster, it appears they divorced with McIntyre getting their Barrington Hills home and other assets. Henehan got the Cary law office, which went to settle debts…partially settle debts, that is.

The two still live together, according to the Chicago Sun-Times article by Tim Novak and Chris Fusco.

The article goes into Henehan’s mother’s running in the 1974 Democratic Party primary election against Glencoe independent Democrat Harold Katz. Katz won.

It is not hard to imagine that forces aligned with the first Mayor Richard Daley put her up to it. At the time, the article says, his mother worked for the Cook County Sheriff’s Department.

And his father worked for the Cook County Highway Department.

Page three of the Sun-Times story is packed with facts about her ex-husband's "legal mess."

  1. Why is this news? Why is anyone interested in this.

    Our media are sick.

  2. 1. McIntyre was SUCH a great choice.

    2. The Daley machine uncovers EVERYTHING.

  3. Skeptic, why is this news? …. wow. Just, wow.

    Not only is it news, but it’s hilarious too.

    Wait .. maybe you are right. In McHenry County maybe this is not news.

  4. As an attorney, I have been before Judge McIntyre on numerous occasions and she has administered the law as I believe she thought proper, even when deciding arguments against my positions.

    The papers and this blog should realize that she will make difficult judgments which is her job. She is not corrupt.

    She is a fair judge.

    In short, Judge McIntyre is not deserving of being the subject of a Chicago witchhunt.

    I’m sure, in the end, her rulings in this very public case will be based on what she belives is right, just and equitable.

  5. Yes, Robert that is exactly how I would characterize this … oh wait, I wouldn’t in a million years characterize this as a witch hunt.

    A “witch hunt” implies that you accused someone of something they didn’t do.

    Here, a judge divorced a person to duck the bills, but stayed living with them.

    Legal sure, a sharp tactic … of course.

    Demonstrates integrity?

    I’ll let everyone else make that call.

    I think you are standing on your own.

    If the good judge had the integrity you described, would they have done this?
