Judge Carmen D. Minora of the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas has issued another decision in which he outlines the trial court's standard of review when faced with a motion for recusal of the trial judge.
This time the decision was handed down in the case of Friends of Lackawanna v. Dunmore Borough Zoning Hearing Board, No. 2015-CV-6337 (C.P. Lacka. Co. Nov. 28, 2016 Minora, J.), which involved a Land Use Appeal.
In this decision, Judge Minora not only addressed a motion for the trial court judge to recuse himself, but also a request that the entire Lackawanna County Bench be recused. Judge Minora recused himself but denied the motion to recuse the entire court.

Judge Minora's other decision on the standard of review for a motion to recuse was the case of Schoenburg v. State Farm. Here is a LINK to that Tort Talk post, which contains a Link to that decision.
