The Chicago Tribune, Chicago’s largest newspaper weighing in on judicial races, endorsed Tom Cushing for judge on March 6, 2016.
In endorsing Tom, the Tribune stated, “Thomas Maloney Cushing got exceptional reviews from the CBA and the Council of Lawyers. He has broad experience as a civil litigator and has worked for the Chicago Climate Exchange and as assistant counsel to Chicago’s Shakman decree monitor. He’s also an adjunct professor at Loyola University Law School.”
The Tribune based its endorsement on bar association evaluations and interviews with attorneys and judges who know the candidates.
“This reinforces what we knew all along,” said campaign manager Joe Cushing, “that Tom’s great credentials and character would set him apart.”
