Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 63. Judge’s Inability to Proceed.


If the trial judge is unable to perform the duties required after a verdict is returned or findings of fact and conclusions of law are filed, because of death, sickness or other disability, then any other judge regularly sitting in or assigned to the court in which the action was tried may perform those duties. If the other judge is satisfied that the judge cannot perform those duties, the judge may grant a new trial.
