The mother of said child filed to hold the father in contempt for violating the child custody order set out in their divorce proceedings. Three hours after the mother filed to hold the father in contempt, the father's lawyer filed to modify custody and remove the child from the mothers care. The Judge set the mothers case for late April, but took the fathers case within 2 hours of it being filed with the clerk.The Judge has presided over a case for this family in September. Now this Judge is presiding over two cases and has shown a bias against the mother by removing the child from her care based on an affidavit that was not shown to be fact, only hearsay. The Judge did not allow the mother to present evidence in her favor and refused to let the mother speak freely. No, I am not the mother, I am a concerned friend. Edit: Yes, the judge did end up recusing herself. She ended up being extremely bias and could not keep her mouth shut.
