After Judge Randa unexpectedly disqualified himself pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 455(a) and (b), from presiding over the human rights violation case against Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, Judge Lynn Adelman of the US Federal District Court of Wisconsin held a preliminary status conference on January 14 with attorneys from both sides.


While Plaintiffs' claimed serving Badal on August 9, 2012 at Oak Creek High School, attorneys representing Punjab CM sought dismissal of the human rights violation case due to lack of service based on the sworn statements of Special Agents from Diplomatic Security Service of US Department of State claiming that Badal was not present at Oak Creek High School at that time.

After hearing the position of attorneys representing 'Sikhs For Justice" (SFJ) and CM Badal, Judge Adelman set the case for hearing on February 21 to examine the witnesses and evidence.
