17-1566

Issues: (1) Whether the district court judge’s failure to recuse himself – or even disclose his involvement with the police investigation relating to the likely murder weapon in this case – violated the petitioner’s rights under the due process clause; (2) whether, under McDonough Power Equipment, Inc. v.
