Judge Matthew Coghlan of Chicago; incompetent loser


The state of Illinois presented Matthew Edward Coghlan with a law license in 1987 after he graduated from the University of Illinois School of Law.


It should be noted that Matty has had his significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough for the past thirty-one (31) years (1987-2018). Apparently, no self-respecting law firm in the greater Chicago area was about to offer Matty a good paying job.


In one matter, the Cook County Democratic Party made a recommendation to the voters that they vote “no” on Matty’s retention effort in November 2018.


Jacob Kaplan, the Cook County Democrats’ executive director, said he believes it’s the first time the party has ever recommended a “no” vote — at least in the past 40 years. He called it a “difficult but necessary decision to maintain the high integrity of the party’s values and mission.” (Chicago Tribune)


While employed as an Assistant Cook County Prosecutor, Matty presided over a murder case involving Armando Serrano and Jose Martinez. In a lawsuit filed against Matty, Serrano and Montanez allege that he assisted in framing them for the murder by working hand-in-hand with disgraced form Chicago police Detective Reynaldo Guevara.


Subsequently, both Serrano and Montanez were found to be victims of wrongful convictions, which appears to have been at the hands of Matty and others working in the Cook County Prosecutor’s office at the time.


All that remains now is to see if the voters in Chicago will tell Matty to take a hike. If they do, he can always apply for a job as a greeter at his local Walmart Supercenter store.


As we speak (ca. March 2019), Matty continues to sit as a Cook County Superior Court judge in Chicago, Illinois.
