Judge removed from divorce case after sending one party a Facebook friend request
Judge removed from divorce case after sending one party a Facebook friend request. Is this ex parte? I'm not sure, but I would argue it on appeal. This is good lawyering by the appellant here because this is clearly an issue. The issue is whether a friend request is ex parte. I always took ex parte to mean discussions between one lawyer and the judge without the other lawyer present about the pending case.
