WILLIAM B. JONES )( IN THE DISTRICT COURT
Vs. )( 294TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
BIRNBAUM )( VAN
MOTION FOR RECUSAL OF JUDGE ZIMMERMANN
COMES NOW, Udo Birnbaum ("Birnbaum"), Defendant in the above styled and numbered cause, and would show the Court the following:
1. Birnbaum brings this motion under RCP Rule 18b(2)(a, b) by reason of personal bias and prejudice against pro se Birnbaum.
Rule 18b. Grounds for Disqualification and Recusal of Judges:
A judge shall recuse himself in any proceeding in which:
(a) his impartiality might reasonably be questioned;
(b) he has a personal bias or prejudice concerning the subject matter or a party, or personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning the proceedings;
2. Judge Zimmerman has a personal bias by reason of being sued, among others, on May 30, 1999, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division (No. 3-99-CV0696-R), under 18 U.S.C. § 1964(c) ("civil RICO"), such suit for participating, by a "pattern of racketeering activity", in "a scheme round and about the 294th District Courthouse in Canton, Texas ("Wallace's Court") in which one or more of the Defendants attempted to "enrich" themselves by using their relationships in the Court to extort legal fees, moneys, and other valuable things, by the use of fraudulent documents, arguments, and corrupt Court process as weapons for malicious prosecution."
Such personal bias indicated at the last
hearing in this cause on
THE COURT: Well, let me go back a minute, Mr. Birnbaum. If memory serves me correctly, you have filed suit in Federal Court suing, as near as I can tell, every person who has touched this case in any way, whatsoever; including me, Mr. Ray, the Court Coordinator, Judge Wallace and Judge McDowell. I don't know -- whoever else is involved in it.
(Page 6, "Motion to Enter Judgment", Aug. 17, 1999, attached)
4. Judge James B. Zimmermann should be recused from this case to stop the hemorrhage flowing from these frivolous proceedings against me. As a reminder, I did not bring this lawsuit.
