I need help evaluating a recusal issue. The Das family and my family
are next-door neighbors and have been for many years. We're not close
friends, but we're friendly and work together regularly on neighbor things.
Though I can't recall particulars, my memory is that I also represented Junior
Das and his brother on some business-related matters in the early 2000s when
I practiced law at Barrett & Deacon. I know from the counterclaim that Junior
Das was part of the entity that sold the hotel. Please file a notice with
whatever specific information you deem appropriate about the Das family
members' role in the parties' dispute and this case. For example: Are any Das
family members likely to be witnesses? Do they have anything to gain or lose
depending on how this case comes out? This will help me decide, before the
case moves into the merits, whether my impartiality might reasonably be
questioned. Notice due by 15 February 2017.
