If a judge were hearing a case, and the judge were known to have a strong positive bias or strong resentment of a party before the judge, should the judge recuse?
In our justice system, do we allow parties to a case to select which judge will hear their case? Why?
How do we currently assure that parties do not get to pick their judge?
If you learned that in a case that party in a case before a court had been able to somehow pick their judge, should that judge recuse?
