    I'd appreciate knowing that the judge has such a strong bias against me that he could not apply the rule of law.

    On the other...I WANTED to say that if another judge couldn't hear the case within 24 hours, it should be judge an "OK" to the minor's request....because delays at this point are often tantamount to a "no".  Time counts!  But then they'd just NOT recuse themthelves and rule "no".

    I think his purpose is to excuse himself of any moral responsibility at all.  Like Pilate "washing his hands" of guilt, or non-decision.  Then he can avoid ruling against the law he's sworn to uphold, and can be absolved, in his own mind, of any possible investment in the outcome of the case.
