6 out of 7 chief judges in 7th Circuit to soon be women

CHICAGO (AP) — Most chief judges at federal trial courts in the 7th Circuit — comprised of Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin — are already women. Soon, there'll be just one man among them.

The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin reports six of seven chief judges will be women after Pamela Pepper succeeds William Griesbach in Wisconsin's eastern district later this year.

Chief Judge Diane Wood of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals mentioned the development in a Milwaukee speech Monday.

In June, Rebecca Pallmeyer becomes the first female chief judge of the Northern District of Illinois.

Sara Darrow and Nancy Rosenstengel are chief judges of Illinois' central district and southern district, respectively.

Jane Magnus-Stinson is the chief judge of the Northern District of Indiana and Theresa Springmann is for the Southern District of Indiana.
