Two New Jersey trial judges have been reprimanded for making derogatory comments touching on the alienage, ethnicity, race and honesty of physical ailments of litigants and lawyers appearing before them.

Among a litany of incidents laid out in court papers, James Citta of Ocean County, N.J., compared a criminal defendant to O.J. Simpson and ridiculed another for being an immigrant, and James Convery of Essex County, N.J., asked a Hispanic lawyer if she was an illegal alien.
