New Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice To Be Named

Rita Garman
Rita Garman

The Illinois Supreme Court is expected to announce Rita Garman as its next chief justice when it returns from its summer recess next week.

Based in Danville, Garman has been a lawyer since 1968, a judge since 1974 and on the Supreme Court since 2002. 

The chief justice of Illinois serves a three-year term.

 The position usually rotates among the justices based on seniority.

Although the court has yet to formally announce Garman's selection, she would be next in line, and the Illinois and Chicago Bar Associations have already announced receptions in her honor.

Garman would be the second woman to head the Illinois Supreme Court – and only the second woman to lead one of Illinois' three branches of government.
