CHICAGO (AP) - Joseph R. Tybor, who covered legal affairs for the Chicago Tribune before becoming a spokesman for the Illinois Supreme Court, has died at age 68.

Tybor’s son, Adam, said his father died Saturday of complications from pancreatic cancer at his suburban Chicago home.

Tybor, born in Chicago, was a graduate of DePaul University. After serving in the U.S. Army, he joined The Associated Press in Chicago. He earned a law degree in 1979 at DePaul and three years later joined the Tribune as legal affairs writer.

During his career at the Tribune, Tybor also covered college sports. He left the Tribune in 1998 to join the staff of the Illinois Supreme Court.

In addition to his son, Tybor is survived by his wife, Sandra, and a daughter, Sarah Clark.
