Can a suspended Cook County judge return to the bench after being declared legally insane at the time she shoved a sheriff’s deputy in 2012?

For the first time in Illinois, attorneys on the case say, a judicial disciplinary panel has begun tackling the question of whether a judge whose psychotic episodes can apparently be controlled through medication should be allowed to return to the bench.

I thought Cook County Public “Servants” were criminally insane, not just insane.

Too late

“Judge Brim decided to go without any kind of psychiatric treatment of any sort after 15-plus years of these episodes while she was a sitting judge,” Gallo said.

No. There are bigger and better career opportunities coming up. What if Hillary doesn’t run?

Good thing she's not a brain surgeon at government-owned Cook County Hospital.

So, can people with diabetes or heart problems be judges? After all, some of them go loopy too, directly or indirectly from their medical illness.

Exact cause of death will be determined at the autopsy tomorrow".

We have one of these going on in Cleveland. Some Stokes woman who is clearly disturbed has been allowed to sit for years, abusing everyone in the room and rendering psychotic decisions. Only lately has she become so absurd that the bar is forced into doing something. Never let it be said that shysters don't protect their own.

She has been hospitalized for bipolar mood disorder at least six times since 1993, including for three weeks after shoving the deputy, according to the complaint. Brim was retained by voters for an additional six-year term in 2012 even after being suspended and charged with battery.

While hearing a traffic call at the Markham courthouse on March 8, 2012, Brim stopped her work, sat silently for a few minutes and then told those in court that her grandmother had been raped by a white man, that the South Holland and Evergreen Park police departments were targeting blacks and Hispanics and that “justice is all about if you’re black or white,” according to the complaint.
