    [font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]A Cook County judge who twice used the "F" word in court last week will be removed from the bench -- at least for now -- and has agreed to take anger management counseling.[/font]

    [font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Announcing his decision to pull Judge Stanley J. Sacks from hearing cases, Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans called the judge's profanity-laced outburst "an egregious lapse of decorum and dignity."[/font]

    [font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]"In reading the court transcript, I was exceedingly troubled by Judge Sacks' lack of respect for the high office which he holds and for those individuals present for the proceedings," Evans said in a written statement. "Judges, in their courtrooms, must lead by example, holding themselves to the same high standards of conduct they would demand of those appearing before them."[/font]

    [font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Widely viewed as one of the hardest-working and fair, though somewhat crusty, judges at the 26th and California courthouse, Sacks didn't look like he would put up a fight Thursday.
