Chief Justice Joel Bolger has told the lawyers in the Recall Dunleavy case that if they think he should recuse himself from the matter, they should move for him to be disqualified.

But if they don’t move to do so, he’ll consider himself qualified to judge the case coming before him and the other Supreme Court judges on March 25, because he doesn’t think his impartiality is compromised.

In a letter to the counsel on each side of State vs. Recall Dunleavy,the court has said that either side could file a motion to disqualify Chief Justice Joel Bolger by Feb. 26.
