Thank you for your question.To answer your question directly, such requests for recusal and removal to a new jurisdiction are fairly common. However this is not based on case law, this is a motion that the judge himself or herself reviews and then makes a determination as to whether or not there is a potential conflict of interest. If the magistrate who is hearing the case deems himself or herself to not have this conflict, the motion is not granted, and such a motion is not based on case law. I do think this is a good idea, and you should be able to find a template of this motion at your local library but it would not be based on case law, but simply the opinion and wish of the magistrate.Good luck.
