The newly appointed arbitrators have completed their training and will begin their tenures on November 1, 2014. In Chicago, Arbitrator Friedman will handle the dockets formerly handled by Arbitrator Kelmanson. Chicago will also receive two new arbitrators, Arbitrator Bocanegra and Arbitrator Fruth, on January 1, 2015.
In southern Illinois (Zone 1), Arbitrator Nowak will take over the docket previously handled by Arbitrator Zanotti. Arbitrator Nowak, formerly known as Attorney Michael Nowak, was a petitioner’s attorney in Belleville, Illinois, before accepting his new position. The attorneys at Lemp & Murphy have had many cases against Mr. Nowak and found him to be a well informed and reasonable advocate for his clients. It will be interesting to see him on the other side of the bench, but we expect him to perform his duties admirably.
