2) For what purpose would you need to depose the judge? and

3) In what state did this occur?

1. this is a guardianship matter


2. To confirm the reason for her recusing herself (I suspect it was due to my disability and how she came to realize that she was prejudice against me so that I will understand how to help my next judge not to make the same mistake.) Also I would like to know why she biased herself against me to the point that she refused to allow the GAL appointed in the case investigate the issues of concern that I had. I am trying to know how to better relate to a judge so that it doesn't happen again.

Okay. I think you would have a problem justifying deposing a judge for that reason. If she has recused herself, she's no longer really relevant to your matter. You'll have a new judge, and assuming they are impartial and unbiased, get the fair hearing you are due under the law.

Your attorney may ask for clarification on the reason for recusal, but the law does not require the judge to offer any meaningful amount of detail. If they believe they cannot be impartial, that's enough.

If you have more questions please feel free to ask. I'll be happy to answer them. If you do not, please do remember to rate my service in assistance to you today.
