Most chief judges at federal trial courts in the 7th Circuit — comprised of Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin — are already women. Soon, there'll be just one man among them, 7th Circuit Chief Judge Diane Wood noted in a speech Monday.

The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin reported six of seven district court chief judges will be women after Pamela Pepper succeeds William Griesbach in Wisconsin’s eastern district later this year.

Wood mentioned the development in a Milwaukee speech Monday. In June, Rebecca Pallmeyer will become the first female chief judge of the Northern District of Illinois.

Sara Darrow and Nancy Rosenstengel are chief judges of Illinois’ central district and southern district, respectively. In Indiana, Jane Magnus-Stinson is the chief judge of the Southern District while Theresa Springmann is chief for the Northern District.
