Your facts are imossible to understand, but the answer to your question is no.

The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.

A judge has immunity for actions taken while on the bench. You will be extremely unlikely to prevail in a lawsuit claiming conspiracy by a federal judge. You should speak to your lawyer to find out what actually happened.

The answer does not constitute legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. The answer is based only on the information provided, and may be inaccurate in the context of additional facts that have not been provided.
