John J. Curry, Jr. is a well-connected lawyer from a well-politically connected family.
According to Curry website, he claimed that he “thought against corruption, crime and fraud in Illinois my entire career“.
This is not true. Curry obtained his judicial seat in the most unethical manner through personal connections with a well connected lawyer Tyrone Fahner, former Illinois Attorney General for whom Curry worked as Assistant. Curry was also supported by retired Cook County Judge Anthony Iosco, for whose vacancy Curry is was running.
As a lawyer John J. Curry, Jr did not act ethically either which resulted in sanctions against him for filing frivolous law suits. William T. DIVANE, Jr., et al., Plaintiffs-Appellees, v. KRULL ELECTRIC CO., INC., Defendant, John J. Curry, Jr., Respondent-Appellant. No. 98-2137. Decided: 12/28/1999
John Curry is a third generation Chicago Republican, carrying on a family tradition begun by his grandfather, the late Chicago Police Captain William Burke, who likely was the relative of former Chicago Mayor Jane Byrne (born Jane Margaret Burke).

On October 4, 1991 John J. Curry created a Committee to ran for State Representative. The only citizen who supported candidate Curry was lawyer Curry as the Chairman, the Treasurer, which is unethical per se.
Curry’s efforts did not find support from Illinois public. He lost election in 1992.
On March 4, 2004 John Curry created another public campaign where he was Chairman, Treasurer and the main donor. Which is very unethical per se.
John Curry election efforts were supported by THREE (3) other citizens, so he kept position as a Ward Committeeman. Curry purportedly won this election in 1996.
On January 3, 2008 John Curry created a committee to run for a Judge.
On his website Curry claimed that he “ was active with Project LEAP and other efforts over the years to combat vote fraud in Cook County elections”.
Surprisingly, Curry did not mentioned his previous elections to the public offices. In 2012 John Curry, 32nd Ward Republican Committeeman, has announced his campaign for Chairman of the Chicago Republican Party.
The main donors to Curry judicial campaign were himself and his wife Jamie, which is synonymous to buying him this job.
After 5 years without luck with election, in John Curry was finally slotted without any Democratic opponents and in 2014 elected as Cook County Judge in the 13th Judicial Subcircuit to fill the seat of retiring Judge Anthony Iosco which looks very much like a rigged election.
According to the public record, Judge John Curry with his Primary won official with no Democrats filing to run against him. It is well known by Illinois public that Cook County Court is heavily dominated by Democrats which nearly impossible for any Republican lawyer to get a slot for election.
According to Chicago Tribune of October 26, 1998, lawyer’s Anthony Iosco appointment to the bench was very questionable per se since he was NOT selected to be a judge, yet somehow managed to obtain judicial position in 2000.
According to Tribune, in 1998 “the Vincent Bentivenga vacancy, Judge Arnette Hubbard, a Democrat, is preferred over Republican attorney Anthony Iosco”.
In 1998 Anthony Iosco lost his judicial election but somehow managed to obtain a judicial seat.
Worth to mention, Iosco’s election campaign was created at the last moment, on February 18, 2000 which was less than a month before primary. Amazing, but officially Iosco spent minimal funds on his election, less than $3,000.00 and never ran for re-election to the office until he passed his seat to Curry in 2014.
As soon as Anthony Iosco became a judge, in 2001 he was involved into a sexual harassment scandal with Court reporter Regina Clemmer, Case 06-CV- 3361. Yet, he was not removed from his judicial seat.
Despite highly questionable election and adverse reputation, Iosco was able to keep his position as a judge and later passed it to his crony, John C. Curry, Jr.,
As a judge John C. Curry continues to act corrupt and unethical; and is well-known for lenience for criminal banks and predatory collectors which suggests that Curry receive undue influence for his favors.
I have personal experience in Judge Curry’s Court and well-familiar how Judge John C. Jurry freely acts without jurisdiction, trespasses laws, enables fraud and racket, abuse and bully litigants from the bench; deny civil and Constitutional rights; fix cases and even alter case docket.
Judge John J. Curry,
.”When a state officer acts under a state law in a manner violative of the Federal Constitution, he “comes into conflict with the superior authority of that Constitution, and he is in that case stripped of his official or representative character and is subjected in his person to the consequences of his individual conduct. The State has no power to impart to him any immunity from responsibility to the supreme authority of the United States.”
[Emphasis supplied in original]. Whenever a judge acts where he/she does not have jurisdiction to act, they are warring on the constitution, i.e., the judge is engaged inan act or acts of treason.
