IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
JOSEPH J. BUTTERCASE,
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
ERIN ELIZABETH TANGEMAN, Bar
This matter is before me on my own motion. Upon cursory review,
Plaintiff’s Complaint (filing 1) contains allegations accusing me of conspiring and
colluding with the named Defendant, Erin Tangeman, to deprive Plaintiff of his
constitutional rights in the course of his federal habeas proceedings, which are also
pending before me in Case No. 8:18CV131. Though I am not named as a
defendant in the present case, my impartiality might reasonably be questioned
because of the allegations levied against me by Plaintiff, and I am disqualifying
myself pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 455(a).1
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the clerk’s office shall randomly assign
a new judge to this case and request a reassignment order from the Chief Judge.
The chief pro se staff attorney will assist the judge to whom the case is reassigned
if requested to do so.
I am also disqualifying myself in Case No. 8:18CV131 for the same reasons.
