Richard Sasso, formerly a judge in four New Jersey towns, faces a seven-count ethics complaint charging that he showed up drunk in court, bullied lawyers and litigants from the bench, acted disorderly in a go-go bar and committed other violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct and court rules. Sasso resigned his posts in January amid litigation and ethics grievances over his conduct. He cited health problems and the demands of private practice.
