Atascadero, CA asked in Civil Litigation and Probate for California

Q: Hello! I filed a 170.3, and the judge appears to want to fight it.

We have been told by the opposing attorney to confirm that there is no agreement in the single judge who would hear the challenged judge's defense. Questions regard, how many judges does the challenged judge have to defend against, just one? If it is agreed that there is no judge that anyone can agree upon to hear the challenged judge, then is this not an invitation for a change of venue? Please know this is the second judge in this community being recused. The first judge concealed for two years, his relationship with the settlers, and three of the beneficiaries. Two years of damage resulted. Thank You

A: Why would the judge fight his own recusal- he'd either recuse himself or not. [I litigate cases. Anything posted here must not be construed as legal advice, nor as grounds for forming an attorney-client relationship. You should seek an attorney for formal legal advice and representation.]
