Nine people became associate justices of the Cook County Circuit Court Friday morning. They were sworn in by Chief Judge Timothy Evans.

The nine were winnowed down from an original field of 243 attorneys who applied for the positions.

A nominating committee made up of Circuit Court judges cut the field to 18 and a nominating committee made the final nine choices.
