Demetri Plays the Bianchi Card — 17 Comments

  1. Now if only he could keep his eyes open for a photo op, he’d have a decent campaign going.

  2. I have talked with several lawyers that I respect, one retired judge and all confirm that Demetri has not argued any cases in the courtroom in his 8 years in McHenry County.

    He has been an administrator not a prosecutor.

    That is a big difference.

  3. Bianchi wants to control the Courthouse, he has Prim in the Sheriff’s office with all the goings on there, wants Demetri to be a favorite judge, Kennelley to be his State’s Attorney, Wilbrandt as his man in Springfield.

    Talk about the good ole boys!!!!

  4. Jim, how many cases has Bianchi argued?

    What about Cowlin in the past 8 years?

    The fact Demetri hasn’t argued a case doesn’t mean he isn’t knowledgeable of jurisprudence….

  5. Fred, calm down.

    There is nothing but the best intentions as far as Bianchi is concerned.

    Now, if he wanted Zinke or Nygren in office we would have a real problem.

  6. Jim.

    Your contacts are obviously Cowlin supporters.

    Demetri has done trials in a

    Mchebry and other counties.

    I have asked this question many times and as yet have not received a response– how.

    Many jury trials did Cowlin do when he practiced law in criminal and. Civil law.

    Ask your friends the former judge and trusted lawyers.

    You will get a rude awakening on Cowlins so called experience.

  7. Cowlin has pratised law for 20 years more or less, that means he has been in the court room arguing cases for both plaintiffs and defendants, and has been a judge for the last 8 + or -. Lawyers only want a knowledgeable judge that has been on both sides of the coin, civil and criminal.

    There are almost always 2 or more lawyers on any case, so the good ones go against one another every week.

    I’m sorry but Cowlin’s opponent has no experience on the civil side, has not been on the criminal side of a case for the past 8 years.

    He’s not qualified.

    He’s a Bianchi clone.

  8. Still waiting for the names of the “hundreds” or “numerous” (depending on which mailing one is reading) jury and bench trials Mr Tsimilgras has tried.

    Judge Condon wrote a letter to the Herald, and commented on an endorsement letter, both times saying he’d never known Mr Tsimilgras to have tried a case.

    Judge Condon was on the bench for years as one of the most respected judges ever in this county.

  9. Really??

    Obviously Cowlin has not argued a case for the past 8 years, he has been a judge, listening to arguments, then making decisions.

    Tsilimigras has not been in a court room for 8 or more years, Bianchi wants to put him out to pasture, on the bench.

    Makes no sense to me.

    Also, Cowlin’s family has served McHenry County for decades without a hint of impropriety, I will vote for Judge Cowlin, he has earned his spurs.

  10. I’m sorry, I misspelled Mr Tsilimigras’ name twice.

    That was not intentional.

  11. Martin and jim.

    I find it funny that you.both continue to not answer my question as to how many jury trials Cowlin did when he practiced law, could it be because the answer is none.

    Jim has your retired judge and trusted lawyers not gotte Back to you with the answer.

    Who cares what Cowlin has done on the bench.

    No judge knows how to be a judge until they become one.

    Cowlin mAy soon be able to try a case when he looses and he is off the bench.

    Go Demetri — the people’s choice.

  12. wonder if Lou and Pat will look at the video of Sandy and Matt, kissing under the tree

  13. Nick I see your so troubled by this you posted in the middle of the night.

    It must have been a nightmare waking up to the reality that the Cowlin’s, Millers, Franks don’t run the county anymore.

    Perhaps your not sleeping was the cause for you putting irrelevant comments out there.

    Bothius- squint he may, but never will he turn a blind eye to injustice.

  14. Jim, I’m sure you have some education but what is is to “pratised”?

    Is that what you call it when your daddy and your uncle give you a firm clients and you negotiate divorce settlements that read the same each time?

    Or is it a word to describe sneaky behavior such as having campaign workers appear before you rule in thier favor and say nothing?

    Or is that a term to describe not following the law in your own campaign?
