When Senator Ian Gorst accused him of abusing Parliamentary Privilege by revealing partial details of a private court case, Deputy Pitman called him a coward.
The presiding officer demanded he withdrew the comment and make an apology.
The outburst prompted gasps of disapproval from other States members.
During the exchange, the Chief Minister said he was "unaware" of the existence of any super-injunctions in the island.
