Return of campaign donations
After discovering that she would run unopposed in Illinois's 2008 primary elections (held on February 5, 2008), Justice Burke decided to return a considerable amount of her campaign donations. Funds not returned were slated to be used for other Democratic judicial campaigns.
Chicago and Illinois Bar ratings
The Chicago Bar Association and the Illinois Bar Association have both given Justice Burke their highest ratings. The Chicago Council of Lawyers noted Justice Burke's "excellent temperament" and her "impressive" list of civic activities but rated her "not qualified" because she didn't have "sufficient experience" to be an appellate court judge.
