A crusading attorney who has made a career out of fighting City Hall on behalf of pensioners and retirees is joining the crowded race for the Illinois Supreme Court.
Clint Krislov tried to stop the widely-despised parking meter deal. His marathon battle to prevent the city from abolishing its $108 million-a-year subsidy for retiree health care cost him so much time and money, he might have to close his law firm. […]
Krislov is circulating nominating petitions to gather the 5,050 signatures needed by mid-November to become the eighth candidate vying to replace retired Illinois Supreme Court Justice Charles Freeman.
Krislov will face [appointed Supreme Court Justice P. Scott Neville Jr.], as well as appellate court justices Jesse Reyes, Nathaniel Howse, Margaret McBride, Cynthia Cobbs, Sheldon Harris and lawyer Daniel Epstein.
The party is with Neville.
