Recommendations given for new 23rd Circuit's judge positions
SYCAMORE – The Kane County Bar Association has made its recommendations for the vacancies created by judges Kurt Klein and Melissa Barnhart in the newly formed 23rd Judicial Circuit.
Of the 35 candidates interviewed, only two obtained highly recommended status by receiving at least 75 percent of the vote from the 21-member committee. Kendall County lawyer Robert D. Dore and former chief assistant in the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office Jody P. Gleason topped the list.
Jan Wade, executive director of the Kane County Bar Association, said the organization assisted the new district because it just formed and did not have the resources needed to perform the interviews and evaluations. The 23rd Circuit officially formed Monday and includes Kendall and DeKalb counties, which broke away from Kane in the 16th Judicial Circuit.
