Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Maybe that was too specific. I know I read cases that speak to disqualification when a judge "becomes a participant" in the case or adds tips to an attorney/party in questioning.
I think a situation I have where the judge led a party to add to their own request/words, that it would fit the above mentioned. Can you find case law that speaks about the judge "participating," adding things or giving tips, or "soliciting" people to say things or take certain actions? Also, can a judge "lead" a witness or party?
I see a little bit there. I will read those cases. How about "leading" a witness or party? Can a judge do that in Florida law?
