John Burkoff of Recusal of Judges
Professor John Burkoff told the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader that a judge who denied two motions to recuse herself, because her lawyer husband had previously sued the two police officers involved, probably did not make a mistake. "Judges have discretion to decide whether to recuse themselves. The only way an appellate court reviews a judge's decision is if he or she abused his or her discretion."
