Yes, one could reasonably believe that you might not get a fair hearing. You would need to file a timely motion for the judge's recusal and state with particularity the reasons why you believe the judge can't be fair and impartial. If the judge is recused then a new one will be assigned. However, once there is a replacement judge it is significantly harder to get that one recused if you believe they also can't be fair and impartial. Do yourself a favor and hire a lawyer to handle this and the actual case.
This is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.
Remember that the judge you have will be the same one that will hear your recusal, so draft any motion very carefully. You might just want to get any further issues heard in front of a GM. This might be a good time to hire an attorney.

Recusal of a judge is not a matter to be taken lightly. Although judges are not supposed to take a motion to recuse personally, it is human nature not to be able to put it completely out of mind. A motion to recuse while not complex requires adherence to certain specified criteria. You would be best served contacting an attorney to assess your position.
