    It is not a conflict of interest as he was elected to the position for his knowledge of the law and has been retained by the voters so obliviously he is doing a good job and now unfortunately you have to go back in front of him.

    Another judge would just look at your case file and get the same information. Wouldn't change much of anything.

    I think you have a valid point..

    I would ask your lawyer again. Tell your lawyer, you don't feel you will get a fair trial because of a previous case.

    Do you trust the lawyer you have? If not, get another lawyer.
