Da Silva Moore : Judge Carter Denies Motion for Recusal or Disqualification
Da Silva Moore v. Publicis Groupe SA, No. 11 Civ. 1279 (ALC) (AJP) (S.D.N.Y. Nov. 8, 2012)
On November 8th, District Court Judge Andrew L. Carter, Jr. filed his long awaited decision in response to Plaintiffs’ Motion for Recusal or Disqualification of Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck. In his short and to the point opinion, Judge Carter concluded that “Judge Peck’s decision accepting computer-assisted review, reached upon consideration of the applicable law, was not influenced by bias, nor did it create any appearance of bias.” The court further found that “Magistrate Judge Peck’s conduct falls within proper bounds of judicial conduct” and that “[h]is denial of Plaintiffs’ recusal motion is consistent with the interests of judicial economy and the administration of justice.”
