Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 40(d)(5). Disqualification and Assignment of New Judge.
Upon the filing of a motion for disqualification, the presiding judge shall be without authority to act further in such action except to grant or deny such motion for disqualification. Upon disqualification of a judge for any reason, the administrative judge of the judicial district, or designee, shall appoint any other qualified judge in the judicial district to act or preside in the action. In lieu of such direct appointment procedure, the administrative district judge, or designee, may make application to the Supreme Court for appointment of a new judge from outside of the judicial district to act or preside in the action.
