Recusal Required

The Florida Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee opines that a judge must be recused in a matter where his former fiance is an expert CPA witness. The judge also is obligated to disclose that the former fiance's CPA firm rents office space from a partnership in which the judge is a general partner. the relationship had ended 2 1/2 years ago and they "do not currently have a social relationship."
