ILLINOIS -- A Danville native could be the next Chief Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court. Rita Garman would be the second woman to head the court. She's been a judge nearly 40-years and has been on the court since 2002.

The state Women's Bar Association has already announced a reception in her honor. A formal announcement could come later this month.
