Where the claimants had intended to call as a witness someone who was well known to the judge, but had accordingly decided not to call him but to call other witnesses instead, the judge considering whether to recuse himself had to decide whether he should do so because of the risk that new facts might emerge during the course of the trial that would place that witness's role in a new light and lead the judge to conclude that he would then have to recuse himself.
