Late Monday night, the Senate confirmed Gary Feinerman as the Northern District of Illinois’s next district judge.  Judge Feinerman was most recently a partner with Sidley.  He also served as a law clerk to Judge Flaum of the Seventh Circuit and then Justice Kennedy, after which he served in the Justice Department and as Illinois’s Solicitor General.  Judge Feinerman fills the vacancy created when Judge Gettleman took senior status.

Welcome to the Northern District of Illinois bench Judge Feinerman.
