Tri Counties Bank v. Superior Court of Fresno County, F055084
In proceedings to disqualify the trial judge in petitioner's action for recovery of deficiency allegedly owed after repossession and sale of a motor vehicle, petition for writ of mandate to review decision in favor of respondent-court is denied where: 1) the trial court properly struck petitioner's statement of objection as untimely because petitioner delayed over seven months before asserting the alleged ground for disqualification; and 2) a reasonable person would not have questioned whether the trial judge was fair and impartial.
