A motion has been filed to remove an Oakland County judge who's currently presiding over a highly-publicized custody case.

Maya Tsimhoni filed the motion asking Judge Lisa Gorcyca to step down from the case because of "apparent bias."

Earlier this month, Judge Gorcyca ordered Tsimhoni to not have contact with her children for 90 days while they continue to reconcile their relationship with their father.

A decision is expected to be made during a hearing later this morning.
