Applications open for McHenry County judgeships

WOODSTOCK – There will be two openings for associate judges on the McHenry County bench in December because of retirements.

Effective Dec. 3, Judge Michael W. Feetterer will be promoted from associate judge to circuit judge, taking the position of retiring Judge Joseph P. Condon.

Associate Judge Gerald M. Zopp also plans to retire Dec. 31.

Applications are being accepted to succeed Feetterer and Zopp. Circuit judges will vote to select the new judges.

Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, an attorney licensed to practice in Illinois, and a resident of the 22nd Judicial Circuit that serves McHenry County.

Applications must be received by the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts by Oct. 17.

The last new judges in the circuit were sworn in Dec. 2: Joel D. Berg and Kevin G. Costello.

The Illinois Supreme Court had authorized new associate judge positions in the circuit, making a total of 19 judges, based on a population increase.
