I appeared yesterday for a hearing on an Order to Show Cause and Affidavit for Contempt that was filed against me. At the hearing an arraignment date was set.
At what stage is it timely to file a Peremptory Challenge against the hearing judge ?

It must be before the judge makes any orders and within ten days of being assigned. Do you have any other questions?

It must be within ten days of the assignment for all purposes. Did that occur before the Judgment was entered?
