This doesn't sound like a product liability law question (the category chosen, which is more about injuries from dangerous products). You are probably not asking about non-legal aspects of taking photos when you mention taking photos "as the photographer" (as in technical attributes... View More

Generally, reassignment of a case does not mean it starts all over again. That goes for motions which were filed and presumably decided already. The rulings are considered the law of the case. Essentially, the new judge picks up where the former judge left off.
