William M. Windsor has succeeded in establishing a federal court precedent that is vital to every pro se party.
On July 1, 2011, United States District Court Judge for the Northern District of Georgia issued three (3) orders recognizing that a pro se party has the right to sign his or her own 28 U.S.C. 144 Certificate when filing a motion to recuse a federal judge.
This is important because the many corrupt federal judges use the argument that a pro se partry can’t file a motion to disqualify under 28 U.S.C. 144 because they aren’t an attorney and can’t file the 28 U.S.C. 144 Certificate by an attorney that the motion was filed in good faith.
I spent weeks researching this and pulling together every case where an opinion was ever issued, and my documentation bowled Judge Amy Totenberg over so that she had to accept it.
I will scan the three orders and attach them here along with the three Motions for recusal. If I were filing a motion for recusal under 28 U.S.C. 144, I would use these cases and attach the orders showing that Judge Amy accepted the pro se 144 Certificates.
This applies only to federal courts, and it applies only to motions for recusal filed at the beginning of a proceeding. After a proceeding gets going, only 28 U.S.C. 455 applies.
Judge Amy’s order is as corruot as can be in all other respects, but that is a story for another day.
