Annette Jeffs attempts to have Judge Walther Recused

Predictably it didn't work and I guess their still at it;

The Salt Lake City Tribune - "On Friday, Walther approved and signed a temporary restraining order Malonis sought to block contact between Teresa Jeffs and FLDS spokesman Willie Jessop. The order instructed Annette Jeffs, the girl's mother, to keep her from Jessop and set a court hearing in the matter for Tuesday afternoon.

But the hearing was temporarily halted after Annette Jeffs sought Walther's recusal. Her motion pointed out that security was placed around the judge's home after Texas law enforcement circulated dossiers that alleged Jessop was an enforcer for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.

The motion questioned whether, given that security, Walther could be impartial in a case involving Jessop. Malonis alleges that the girl's push for a new attorney was due to coercion from Jessop."

This is so wrong.

I sometimes read too quickly.

Scanning across the feeder panel, I saw

"Annette Jeffs attempts to have Judge Walthers Rescued."

so, I'm thinking, the Mississippi flooding wildly into the plains of Texas with a massive wall of water at the judge's desk, and the forgiving Annette Jeffs reaches up her hand to grab the drowning woman and save her from . . . .

(Yes, I've been scanning tons of headlines; how fast the brain works to justify the wording.)

And yet, Annette Jeffs is giving the Judge a perfect opportunity to recuse herself.

Maybe rescue is the right word.
