Oklahoma Supreme Court addresses application of 20 OS 95.10

The Oklahoma Supreme Court holds that 20 OS 95.10 does not require judicial disqualification upon appellate reversal and remand.  The statute is not allowed to usurp the courts' superintending control of judicial assignments.

"Mere reversal of a lower court's dispositive rulings will not, standing alone, provide a sufficient basis to warrant disqualification."
