The magistrate judge recommended that the district judge should not recuse himself. "Judge Folsom’s spouse owns stock in [a company that] owns a portion of the defendant. . . . At present, [the third party company] owns only approximately 4.85% of [defendant]. After receiving the submission of [defendant], the undersigned finds that this remote interest by [the third party] of a defendant is insubstantial and does not require a recusal by Judge Folsom."
