|✪ *Pro Tip* – #1 recommended search terms: judge:lastname AND 170.6|
Here’s an example below of the search for: judge:byrdsong AND 170.6.
What’s great about this is that when you go through the dockets you will see whether the case was with the judge you looked up when a party filed a 170.6 or whether it ended up with that judge as a result of a 170.6.
Things to think about:
- See what parties have been filing peremptory challenges against this judge. Is it more Plaintiffs or Defendants?
- Once they do file the peremptory challenge, where are they reassigned? Is that judge a better or worse fit for your case?
