A new brief was filed Thursday by Rochester Judge Leticia Astacio's attorney.

The first point states that the State Judicial Commission's proceeding was unfair and "highly prejudicial" information was introduced that was not part of the evidence.

The second point states that Astacio acknowledged her conduct was inappropriate.

The third point states that Astacio should only be censured.

The Committee ruled she should be removed from the bench back in April.
