Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
I am very sorry to learn of this situation.
Unfortunately, the way in which our legal system is set up in CA, you cannot remove a judicial officer after they have made a ruling on your case (you can do so before they have done this in the process known as a "preemptory challenge" - but in your case, the court has already made a ruling, so this is not going to work).
Your remedy is to continue litigating your case through to a final determination or judgment, and then if dissatisfied with the result, file an appeal.
Appeals or post-judgment motions in small claims matters are discussed in detail here: http://www.courts.ca.gov/1072.htm

Please clarify, are you the plaintiff in a small claims case?
Has there been a trial yet?
