Once Recused A Judge Does Not Have Authority To Enter Additional Order

In Lake v. Lake (3D08-2525), the Third District reversed based upon a confession of error. The court stated:

Once the trial judge recused himself, he had no further authority to enter orders. See Bolt v. Smith, 594 So. 2d 864, 864 (Fla. 5th DCA 1992) ("Florida case law is well settled that once a trial judge has recused himself, further orders of the recused judge are void and have no effect.").
