    If a judge does not follow the rules of court, what effect does that have on his or her rulings or orders, and how can this be remedied???

    Attempt at a remedy!

    As a general point, the “effect” is very much dependant on the nature of the procedure(s) that was not followed or the motion that was denied or granted, as well as whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, but they usually land in the losing party’s lap.

    The available remedy or the available attempt at a remedy rather, in such instances would be either to move for a New Trial or to just appeal the judgment based on Abuse of Discretion, Procedural Defects, and Harmful Errors.
