I just get a " STRICKEN as UNTIMELY" Peremptory

Hi;I just get a " STRICKEN as UNTIMELY" for my Peremptory Challenge to remove the Judge from handling my case was filed on December 07, 2015. My case was Limited Civil filed on July 30, 2015 and the FIRST hearing on November 12, 2015.This was a "Chambers Work" and the judge doesn't say what rule or procedure my challenge was violated (Untimely filed).In California, Peremptory Challenge is not appealable, only a Petition for Writ of Mandate is allowed.CCP 170.6(a)(2) states: Motion files at least 10 days before the date set for trial or hearing.If the court in which the action is pending is authorized to have no more than one judge, and the motion claims that the duly elected or appointed judge of that court is prejudiced, the motion shall be made before the expiration of 30 days from the date of the first appearance in the action of the party who is making the motion.Since the Judge doesn't said, my question to you is: Any rules and/or procedures that myPeremptory violated?Thank you for your attention.

To Socrateaser: Im envolved in an administrative proceeding

To Socrateaser:I'm envolved in an administrative proceeding in California. I'm in pro per and I'm the citizen accuser under B&P Code Section 24201. The hearing is set for July 9, 2012. The respondent is represented by an attorney. The case is in front of the Office of Administrative Hearings. I want to file a motion for summary Judgment as I feel there are no trialable issues of fact. My main complaint is that this licensee misrepresented a material fact in his license application by ommiting "hidden owners". After this application, in seperate actions, two courts have ruled there were "hidden ownerss"in this licensed premise. I have these rulings (certified) and the application. The first ruling is a small claims judgment and the other is a ruling from a family court stating there were "hidden owners". Is there a (motion) in administrative proceedings I can use like a motion for summary judgment?
