McMorrow said she encountered a woman who said she admired the judge and had told all of her friends to vote for McMorrow in the upcoming election.
But when McMorrow did run for the high court, she thought the poll workers and even fellow voters would be excited about her showing up to cast a ballot, especially because she had appeared in TV commercials bolstering her campaign.

McMorrow, who participated in a unanimous ruling ordering his adoptive parents to turn over a 4-year old boy known as "Baby Richard" to his biological father, later dissented from her fellow justices.

 ICJL News Update
SPRINGFIELD - In the wake of last year's bitter and expensive Illinois Supreme Court race in Southern Illinois, the court's chief justice quietly convened a meeting of the state's top legal minds Tuesday to lay groundwork for what could be a major overhaul of the way Illinois selects its judges.
A court official and others confirmed Wednesday that Chief Justice Mary Ann G. McMorrow convened the unusual meeting in the Supreme Court's headquarters in Springfield with about 20 leaders of the state's bar organizations and political reformers, as well as six of the seven justices.
The purpose, sources said, was to begin a process that could eventually make recommendations to the Legislature for changes in the election system as it relates to judges - who, like all Illinois politicians, are elected under a campaign finance system that allows unlimited political donations from any source.

By ARTHUR S.
