Customer: Can one ask a judge to step done if their is a bias felt. Perhaps not a clear one. But the judges dynamic with the opposing certainly feels they have had side conversations regarding the case and that opposing position on such. The judge initiated the hearing by first address the accused if they had an unresolved issue they want to mention. This was the first question the judge gave. Though there was a objection this attorney made in prior hearings on 2 occasion but had been extensively denied both motion he set to propose. Denied multiple times would he honestly get to submit another motion? For the same he had been denied now twice

Yes, there are provisions in the WA civil procedure to disqualify a judge who presides over an administrative hearing. The party who want the judge disqualified files a motion to that effect. The statute governing this process can be found here: https://app.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=34.05.425

Customer
Thank you!
Can you tell me if there is a procedure for the number of times a person can object to a judges decision to dismiss the case? If the judge continues a case and the defendant objects to such. And then is denied, can the defendant ask a new judge place on the same case, another objection and motion to reconsider to dismiss the case another time after he had already been denied and allowed arguement?

You are welcome.  Generally, if a judge dismisses a case then that motion or request to open would go back to that same judge for review.  If the decision is upheld then that’s usually the last time it can be addressed.  Usually, one judge will not override the decision of another judge, unless it’s at the appellate level.

Customer
Appreciate you! Thanks for helping!!
