Rule 63. Judge's Inability to Proceed
If a judge conducting a hearing or trial is unable to proceed, any other judge may proceed with the hearing or trial upon certifying familiarity with the record and determining that the action may be completed without prejudice to the parties. In a hearing or a nonjury trial, the successor judge must, at a party's request, recall any witness whose testimony is material and disputed, and who is available to testify again without undue burden. The successor judge also may recall any other witness.
