Question: Can I fire a judge in my case

Answer: Under A.RS. §12-409 to have a case transferred to another judge a party to a case must submit an affidavit alleging the following:The judge involved was previously counsel on the case.The judge has an interest in the case.The judge is related to either party in the case.The judge is a material witness in the case.The party filing the affidavit believes that because of bias, prejudice, or interest of the judge he or she cannot obtain a fair and impartial trial. The affidavit submitted by the party is a sworn statement made by the alleging party. A judge is not removed because a party is not happy with the outcome of the case. There must be grounds, as stated above, to remove a judge. If there are specific concerns, it may be helpful to speak to an attorney about your particular situation.
