On October 29, 2012, plaintiff Daniel David Dydzak filed a motion to disqualify the Honorable Manuel L. Real, United States District Judge. Dkt. No. 12.

The motion was randomly assigned to this Court for ruling. Dkt. No. 13. Plaintiff brings his motion pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 455(a), (b)(1), (b)(2), and (b)(4), which require disqualification, inter alia, where a judge’s “impartiality might reasonably be questioned.”

As an initial matter, it appears this action was dismissed with prejudice on October 29, 2012. Dkt. No. 11. In light of the fact that no action is pending, it appears that the motion to recuse is moot. Plaintiff’s motion fails on this ground alone. In addition, even if this Court construes plaintiff’s motion as a motion to reconsider the dismissal with prejudice and to disqualify Judge Real, plaintiff’s motion is without merit. Judge Real did nothing more than enforce the unambiguous vexatious litigant order issued by Judge Coughenour in Case No. 11-cv-5560, Dkt. No. 35.1

The order clearly barred plaintiff from initiating any further litigation in this or any other federal court based on his disbarment. Id. at 10. Moreover, that Judge Real is a defendant in a separate matter brought by plaintiff is not—without more—sufficient grounds to disqualify him in other matters.

In order to prevail, plaintiff must set forth facts that show that a judge’s impartiality might reasonably be questioned. Here, plaintiff has asserted no facts that give rise to a question regarding Judge Real’s impartiality. 1 The Honorable Judge John C. Coughenour, District Court Judge for the Western District of Washington, sitting by designation of the Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit.

There is simply no showing that Judge Real acted improperly in this case by enforcing the order of Judge Coughenour. In accordance with the foregoing, plaintiff’s motion to disqualify is hereby DENIED.

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

    (JCW is responsible for retitling this press release)(JCW also feels that this is a great reason to surrender your CJA membership and join the ACJ and no, we’re not judges or affiliated with the ACJ in any manner) October 25, 2016 Last May, the California Judges Association crowed that it had been given “a seat […]
