Medical Malpractice Looms Large in Illinois Supreme Court judge's Retention Campaign

An Illinois Supreme Court judge who earlier this year voted to throw out a 2005 law that placed caps on the amount patients could receive in medical malpractice cases has raised $2.5 million for his retention campaign. Opponents of Tom Kilbride, who is running as an independent, have raised $650,000 to campaign against his retention.

Combined, the $3 million+ raised make this contentious race the most expensive Supreme Court retention campaign the state has ever seen, according to the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform.
