Its 2019 are motions to disqualify a federal judge under 28 U.S.C. 455 still given to the same disqualified
federal judge to decide against himself? A general order was filed in 2016 "motion to disqualify judge is given to another judge" but since then it seems that these motions are still decided by the same judge.
Nope. You ask the judge to recuse self. That's why it's a dangerous plan to attempt.
This answer DOES NOT create an attorney-client relationship, and DOES NOT address the many specific and confidential variables needed to provide adequate legal advice. This answer is ONLY general guidance.
The same judge you want recused is the judge that makes a decision on such motion; sometimes, depending on specific allegations in the motion to recuse the court's magistrate judge will decide the matter instead. If you think this answer is the BEST OR HELPFUL PLEASE MARK SUCH. FEEL FREE TO LEAVE A POSITIVE REVIEW AS WELL.
