Can a Judge Be Removed from Your Case?

Getting Your Judge Removed From Case Just Got a Little Easier-Why You Need a Highly Skilled Criminal Defense Attorney Who Knows the Law on Your Side

The United States Supreme Court in a 5 to 4 decision ruled recently that you can make a motion to have your judge removed from the case in certain circumstances. In the decision, the court stated that if you determine that your judge has received a substantial campaign contribution from any lawyer involved in the case (or even a witness in the case) that you may be able to successfully have him removed from your case.

If you feel your judge may be biased against you or your lawyer, then one thing to consider is to ask the court and opposing counsel if they have made any campaign contributions to the judge’s election campaign.
