Abstract

This topical survey reports on a case decision on the law of judicial recusal. This case concerns conditions upon which judges must recuse themselves from hearing cases. Following the guidelines that judges must recuse themselves upon objective evidence of impropriety or judicial prejudice, the appeals court came to a sound decision upholding the trial judge's refusal to recuse himself from a case in which his allegedly biased contacts were found to be merely over scheduling matters rather than any substantive legal issues.
