201. A judge who considers that one of the parties may have serious reasons to question the judge’s impartiality is required to declare as much to the chief justice or chief judge without delay. In such a case, the chief justice or chief judge designates another judge to continue or try the case and informs the parties.
A party that has serious reasons to question the judge’s impartiality must declare as much without delay in a written statement notified to the judge and the other party. If the judge does not withdraw from the case within 10 days after the notification, a party may make an application for recusation. A party may, however, waive the right to recuse.
Statements and any other document relating to the recusation are filed in the record.
