    I‘m a NY lawyer, but live in a Midwest state, Missouri. There, it‘s a state constitutional right - and absolutely normal - for any litigant to have a judged removed from the case once, without reason or explanation. That doesn‘t even consider normal recusal applications. It would stop all this blather if it applied in NY.
