Oklahoma Rules of Judicial Conduct would prohibit a judge from acting as a lawyer. Specifically, the rules state "A judge shall not practice law. Notwithstanding, a judge may, without compensation, give legal advice to and draft or review documents for a member of the judge's family." However, if the judge is only a part-time judge, then they are able to practice law as long as they don't practice law in the same court where the judge serves.
I do not know if he is part time I just know he does the traffic court and city court. Would this mean he was in the same court that he is a judge in and what should I do sense I lost my case because a judge will not make judgement against a judge
It would depend on whether the traffic court and the city court are in the same building staffed by the same judges. If not, then if he was a part-time judge, then it would be permitted.
