Art. 156. Selection of judge after recusal

            B. When a district court judge in a single-judge district voluntarily recuses himself, the judge shall make a written request to the supreme court for the appointment of an ad hoc judge to hear the cause. When an ad hoc judge appointed by the supreme court to hear a recusal grants the motion to recuse, that judge shall request that an ad hoc judge be appointed to hear the cause.
