As expected, the Illinois Supreme Court has just announced that Justice Rita B. Garman will become Chief Justice on October 26, 2013. The incoming Chief Justice’s term will run until October 25, 2016. Justice Garman was appointed to the Supreme Court on February 1, 2001, and elected to the Court on November 5, 2002. Her official Court biography is here.

For those unfamiliar with Illinois practice, in contrast to (for example) the United States Supreme Court, our constitution provides that the Justices themselves elect one of their number to serve a single three-year term as Chief. Thus, although his tenure as Chief Justice will soon conclude, Chief Justice Thomas L. Kilbride will continue his service on the Court. Chief Justice Kilbride’s official Court biography is here.
