Here's What It Would Look Like to Remove Judge Cannon [View all]


If a district judge’s continued participation in a case presents a significant risk of undermining this public confidence, this Court has the authority and the duty to order the case reassigned to a different district judge. Reassignment may be appropriate, for example, if a judge conducts a trial in a manner that creates the appearance that he is or may be unable to perform his role in an unbiased manner.

So yes, the 11 Circuit should remove Cannon. They should have never let he take the case. Her obvious bias was evident when she had the preliminary case.
