This time, we’re beginning our review of the voting record of Justice Michael Burke, who took his seat on March 1, 2020, replacing the retired Justice Robert R. Thomas.  Previously, Justice Burke had served for twelve years as a Justice of the Second District Appellate Court.

During 2020, Justice Michael Burke voted in 19 civil cases.  He voted to affirm in 10 of those cases – 52.63%.  He voted to reverse in 7 cases, or 36.84%.  He cast one split vote to affirm in part and reverse in part and cast one vote to deny.

Join us back here next time when we discuss how often Chief Justice Anne Burke is in the minority in civil cases.
