Pamela McLean Meyerson's appointment to the judiciary by the Illinois Supreme Court is cause for celebration. Her devoted service to the community has earned her the gratitude and affection of many Oak Parkers. Her outstanding legal qualifications make us proud. As the Chicago Tribune found, she is "smart, calm and careful," perfect ingredients for an excellent judicial temperament. She was selected as the result of an unusually rigorous process designed by our high court to ensure that only lawyers of the highest caliber are selected to become judges. Hurray for Pam.
