Astounding Recusal Order

Judge Robert Scola, Jr. (S.D. Fla) issued this Order of Recusal the day before yesterday. Must reading. Note the fourth and fifth paragraphs.

Spotted via “Immoral and barbaric” at SDFLA Blog.

Update: Lest there be doubt, I mean astounding in a good way. Although I do worry a little about the ability of other local judges to try the case in a manner that would be immune to a claim that their impartiality might reasonably be questioned. Maybe a change of venue is pending?
