CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - The state Supreme Court has banned a former Pinal County justice of the peace from ever working again as a judge in Arizona.

The Casa Grande Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1rMq9S4 ) reports that the court’s Sept. 23 order follows a lengthy investigation into the Maricopa-Stanfield Justice Court formerly overseen by Scott Sulley.

Sulley was placed on administrative leave early this year after the problems surfaced. The problems included missing records and $200,000 unaccounted for.

The Supreme Court determined that Sulley failed to effectively oversee court administration, prohibited staff training and created a hostile work environment. It said Sulley also made discriminatory comments and demonstrated poor demeanor, professionalism and decorum during his 10-year tenure.

Sulley did not attend an Aug. 8 hearing by the state judicial conduct commission or appeal its findings and recommendations
