IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 11, 2010
REDDING BANK OF COMMERCE, A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF,
SCOTT JOHANNESSEN, AN INDIVIDUAL AND TENNESSEE CITIZEN, AND LORRIE JOHANNESSEN, AND INDIVIDUAL AND TENNESSEE CITIZEN, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
On April 7, 2010, Defendant filed a motion to vacate the clerk's entry of default. (Docket No. 10.) However, a review of a filing in this case indicates I should recuse myself as the presiding judge. C.f. United States v. Holland, 519 F.3d 909, 913 (9th Cir. 2008) (stating that the purpose of the recusal statute "is to avoid even the appearance of partiality.") Therefore, I recuse myself, and the Clerk of the Court shall reassign this case to another judge. The hearing on Defendant's motion currently set for May 17, 2010 is vacated.
