What are My Remedies if the Judge in My Case is Biased?
A recusal motion is made directly to the judge, who must decide it before s/he rules on a motion to reargue and/or vacate. Otherwise, if an appeal is taken, you can ask in your brief that if the case is remanded (sent back to the trial court) that it be assigned to a different judge. If you have a complaint about a NY state judge, you may file a complaint with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct at:
