Under Rule of Professional Conduct 1.12, a former judge may not act as counsel in connection with a matter in which the he participated personally and substantially as a judge without the informed written consent of all parties. This decision affirms an order disqualifying a former judge under this rule. It holds that any party to the proceeding in which the former judge acts as counsel has standing to move to disqualify him–the objector need not have been a party to the prior related proceeding in which the lawyer participated as a judge. The fact that the lawyer learned no confidential information while acting a judge is not a defense to disqualification under this rule. Also, for this purpose the “matter” in which the judge participated is broadly defined to encompass other actions arising between the same parties and involving the same basic facts.
