Where are the other 20 lawsuits which the plaintiffs' lawyers announced to the press last Spring that would be filed by last Memorial Day?

What are the odds that the Cook County judge graduated from John Marshall 30 years ago? It's no secret that a fair number, almost certainly a majority, of Cook County judges graduated from 2nd, 3rd, and 4th tier law schools. John Marshall grads run many gears in the Chicago Machine. I'm not sure what that fact speaks to.
