A Bronx Family Court judge’s bid to block a New York Commission on Judicial Conduct investigation into complaints that she demeaned litigants, lawyers and court officers in her courtroom has been rejected by a Manhattan Supreme Court justice in a decision that was unsealed Wednesday.

In addition to reviewing complaints from third parties, the commission has initiated its own investigation into whether Family Court Judge Marian R.
