Davis was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder, and one count of child abuse. Before trial, Davis filed a motion to disqualify the trial judge assigned to his case, and the judge denied the motion as legally insufficient. On direct appeal, the Second District Court of Appeal concluded that Davis’ motion to disqualify the judge was legally sufficient and should have been granted but concluded that the error was harmless. The Second DCA affirmed Davis’ judgment and sentences and certified a question of great public importance to this Court for review.
