Illinois judgeships

A reader writes:

The Maag loss might have more of an effect on the Fifth District in Illinois than many, including myself, first thought. A story in the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports another 5th District Judge, Judge Clyde L. Kuehn, is a temporary judge who will be off the court by next month, and by tradition, the first order of business for Karmeier will be to appoint successors to both Maag's and Kuehn's seats. That would likely be a pretty significant shift in the Fifth.
