Governor Quinn Names Acting General Counsel
Deputy General Counsel John Schomberg Gets Top Legal Post

CHICAGO – May 17, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today named Deputy General Counsel John Schomberg as Acting General Counsel for the Office of the Governor effective May 21. Schomberg is replacing General Counsel Theodore T. Chung, who is returning to private practice.

“John Schomberg is an essential member of my office’s legal team, and I look forward to working with him as Acting General Counsel,” said Governor Quinn. “In addition, I want to thank Ted Chung for all he’s accomplished as General Counsel and wish him every success in the future.”

Schomberg has been with the Office of the Governor since 2009, when he was hired as Deputy General Counsel. During his tenure, Schomberg has been involved with the major issues the Governor’s legal team has managed and worked on.

Prior to joining the Office of the Governor, Schomberg, 37, was an Assistant Corporation Counsel at the City of Chicago Department of Law and an Associate at Chicago-based Mayer Brown LLP (Background Information).

Before being named General Counsel to Governor Quinn in February 2009, Chung, 43, served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, a Deputy Chief of Staff in the Chicago Mayor’s Office, the First Assistant Corporation Counsel in the City’s Law Department, and a partner at a private firm in Chicago.
