Can you win a appeal if your case was influenced unfairly

Customer Question

Can you win a appeal if your case was influenced unfairly based on a lack of judges in a county court system. The case was started by one judge during the pretrial part of it. Then it got pushed back because their was a lack of judges due to judges retiring
and none being appointed. Then another judge took over and ruled against the other actions of that judge. Is their any case law in new jersey for trials that were affected or influenced unfairly by the court system.

The fact that there was a shortage of judges is not the basis for an appeal in any jurisdiction. If however because of that shortage, and a judge being overworked, the judge made an error of law in the case, that error can be the basis for an appeal. Cases frequently go through several judges, as judges get moved to different benches and retire and the like, and that cannot form the basis for an appeal in and of itself.
