CORRECTED MOTION FOR DISQUALIFICATION OR RECUSAL OF JUDGE HARDAWAY The State of Alabama respectfully requests that Judge Hardaway recuse himself from the above-captioned proceedings. As grounds therefore, the State would show unto the Court as follows:

1.

In relevant part, the Canons of Judicial Ethics provide as follows:

CANON 2: A JUDGE SHOULD AVOID IMPROPRIETY AND THE APPEARANCE OF IMPROPRIETY IN ALL HIS ACTIVITIES. A. A judge should respect and comply with the law and should conduct himself at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary. B. A judge should at all times maintain the decorum and temperance befitting his office and should avoid conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice which brings the judicial office into disrepute. C. A judge should not allow his family, social, political, or other relationships to influence his judicial conduct or judgment. He should not lend the prestige of his office to advance the private interests of others; nor should he convey or 9

permit others to convey the impression that they are in a special position to influence him. He should not testify voluntarily as a character witness at any hearing before any court, or judicial or governmental commission.

CANON 3C. DISQUALIFICATION: (1) A judge should disqualify himself in a proceeding in which his disqualification is required by law or his impartiality might reasonably be questioned, including but not limited to instances where: (a) He has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party, or personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning the proceeding;…

2.

In Ex parte Duncan, 638 So. 2d 1332 (Ala. 1994), the Alabama Supreme Court

stated the following concerning Canon 3.C(1): “Under Canon 3(C)(1), Alabama Canons of Judicial Ethics, recusal is required when ‘facts are shown which make it reasonable for members of the public or a party, or counsel opposed to question the impartiality of the judge.’” 638 So. 2d at 1334 (quoting Acromag-Viking v. Blalock, 420 So. 2d 60, 61 (Ala. 1982)). 3. The standard for recusal is objective: “whether a reasonable person knowing

everything that the judge knows would have a reasonable basis for questioning the judge's impartiality.” Ex parte Bank of America, N.A., 39 So. 3d 113, 117 (Ala. 2009) (citations and quotations omitted). “The focus of inquiry, therefore, is not whether a particular judge is or is not biased toward the petitioner; the focus is instead on whether a reasonable person would perceive potential bias or a lack of impartiality on the part of the judge in question.” Id. (citations and quotations omitted.) 4. Attached hereto as Exhibit A is an Order heretofore entered by the Alabama

Supreme Court in a prior pending case involving a seizure of gambling devices similar to those at issue here from the very same facility at issue in the instant case — Greenetrack. Greenetrack was a party to the proceedings in which the Order was entered, and it is a party in the above10

captioned CV-11-900029. The State is also a party to the proceedings at issue in Exhibit A, affirmatively sought the removal of Judge Hardaway that is reflected in Exhibit A, and is a party to both of the above-captioned actions. 5. There are multiple common legal issues in the above-captioned actions and in the

actions reflected in Exhibit A, and a ruling on those legal issues in the above-captioned actions could effectively determine or materially affect the pending proceedings at issue in Exhibit A. 6. As a result of the forgoing, Judge Hardaway’s impartiality might reasonably be

questioned in the above-captioned matters, as one of the opposing parties in CV-11-900029 has effectively admitted. See Nova’s Motion to Consolidate in CV-11-900029. 7. Moreover, Judge Hardaway recently testified as a witness in an off-docket

proceeding, In re Search Warrant, which is factually-related to CV-11-900029. 8. In light of the forgoing, to avoid any appearance of bias or impropriety, and to

promote public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary, the State respectfully requests Judge Hardaway to recuse himself from the above-captioned actions. For these reasons, the State of Alabama respectfully requests that Judge Hardaway recuse himself from the above-captioned proceedings.
