My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.The process to raise bias on the part of the judge is to "voir dire" (latin for question) the judge. You should have your attorney (assuming you have a lawyer representing you) do this at the start of the next session. You are permitted to voir dire the judge to determine if they have bias and should recuse themselves.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
If the judge fails to recuse themselves, and you loose the case, you can use that as a basis to file an appeal. So there is a way to protect yourself against a biased judge. But you need to voir dire and challenge the judge (request they recuse themselves) during the trial to preserve the appeal.What you are describing, you will want to voir dire and challenge the judge. IF they refuse to step aside, you can appeal that decision at the conclusion of your case
