Judge Psycho Wins
As far as we can tell, not one judge lost their spot in Cook County:
- Hours after being re-elected to the bench in Cook County, Judge Cynthia
Brim appeared in court this morning on a misdemeanor charge of battery.
"I'm just happy the people voted me back in," Brim said after her status hearing, at which a Cook County judge transferred her case to yet another judge.
Brim was charged in March after she allegedly shoved a sheriff’s deputy and tossed a set of keys toward another at a security checkpoint in the Daley Center. Her arrest came one day after she apparently went on an extended tirade while on the bench in the Markham courthouse.
Brim’s attorney James Montgomery said this morning that his client was "legally insane" at the time of the alleged battery.
Her defense is that she was "legally insane" yet she sits on the bench (or will) while her case gets kicked around from judge to judge unwilling to pull the trigger on her.
Why isn't the Chief Judge hearing this one?
