• Judicial Recusal - There is also another dimension to this aspect - Should a Judge hear a matter where he has already formed an opinion on the subject matter dehors the facts of the case? - A Judge is required to submerge his/her private feelings on every aspect of the case - Where there is ground for believing that such unconscious feelings may operate in the ultimate judgment or may not unfairly lead others to believe they are operating, judges recuse themselves and do not sit in judgment.
