Yesterday morning, I had the pleasure of joining host Jim Meadows on WILL-AM Radio 580’s hour-long discussion show “Focus” for a preview of the Illinois Supreme Court’s September term. Joining us for the discussion was Steve Beckett, a founding partner at Beckett and Webber, P.C. in Urbana and a lecturer at the University of Illinois College of Law. In a wide-ranging discussion, we talked about our experiences arguing cases before the Illinois Supreme Court, speculated about how the Court might evolve as Chief Justice Kilbride’s term as Chief comes to an end and (apparently) Justice Rita B. Garman takes over, and reviewed the possible implications for the law and the lives of Illinois citizens of several criminal and civil cases on the Court’s docket for this month.
