This case is in California.
The question is this:
Can the judge that presided over a case hear and act on the appeal for that same case?
Would it make any difference if the judge is Presiding Judge, San xxxxxxx County in California, the same county where the initial appeal was being heard?
We would expect the judge to recuse himself from the appeal, but we expect it will not happen.
What bones can we pick in such a situation.
