What is the California Family Code that says a judicial officer

This answer was rated:

What is the California Family Code that says a judicial officer who has already heard evidence or taken testimony in a case should remain on the bench for future hearings?
Family Code § 2330.3:
"2330.3. (a) All dissolution actions, to the greatest extent
possible, shall be assigned to the same superior court department for
all purposes, in order that all decisions in a case through final
judgment shall be made by the same judicial officer. However, if the
assignment will result in a significant delay of any family law
matter, the dissolution action need not be assigned to the same
superior court department for all purposes, unless the parties
stipulate otherwise.
(b) The Judicial Council shall adopt a standard of judicial
administration prescribing a minimum length of assignment of a
judicial officer to a family law assignment.
(c) This section shall be operative on July 1, 1997."


Also:

"To the extent possible, family law actions related to the same family should be assigned to the same judicial officer for all purposes, so that all decisions that are made in a case through final judgment are issued by the same judicial officer."
