Lippincott Article on Judicial Disqualification

Featured in The Florida Bar Journal

A key ingredient to our judicial system is the promise that the judiciary will be neutral regarding the subject matter, and between the parties. Indeed, judges have the responsibility to recuse themselves from the proceedings if they have a relationship with the subject matter, party, attorney, or witness. If a judge fails to act, it is the attorney’s duty to seek judicial disqualification.

Ms. Lippincott’s article “Don’t Let the Blindfold Slip: A Guide to Judicial Disqualification” is featured in the April 2012 Florida Bar Journal. This article provides Florida attorneys with detailed assistance on when and how to seek judicial disqualification.
