A Cook County judge is likely to keep her $182,000-a-year job even though she was recently charged with misdemeanor battery and though some legal groups say voters should give her the boot.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports a supervising panel suspended Cynthia Brim earlier this year after she allegedly pushed sheriff's deputies at a courthouse. The 54-year-old pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Her case illustrates how rarely voters unseat judges. It hasn't happen in Cook County in 22 years.

The Democrat is one of 57 Cook County Circuit Court judges up for retention.

The Chicago Bar Association recommends voters reject her. But the Democratic Party backs her.

Brim declined comment to the Sun-Times. A telephone listing for her was unpublished.

The next hearing in Brim's battery case is Nov. 7.
