TUCSON, Ariz. -- A Pima County Superior Court judge has received a public censure from the Arizona Supreme Court.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Judge Carmine Cornelio was censured for behavior during settlement conferences in two separate cases.

An attorney in a January 2012 settlement conference involving possible exposure to toxic mold complained to the Arizona Commission on Judicial Conduct that Cornelio made inappropriate comments that cause the 19-year-old plaintiff to cry.

The second complaint was filed over Cornelio's conduct in a series of settlement conferences from May 2011 to March 2012 for a Cochise County case involving the sale of family property.

Cornelio allegedly used profanity, told a client her attorney was incompetent and threatened parties if they failed to reach an agreement.

Cornelio was previously censured in 2010.
