A Judge who believes that he is biased should recuse themselves. If the Judge believes that he can fairly adjudicate the case, then he can; but most would not simply to avoid any appearance of prejudice.

Not really enough information given in order to answer. Sign an order for what? Affecting who? Who 'dismissed' the judge from the case?

The case must be listed in Schedule B as an asset, and the trustee can either take the case over or abandon it, depending on whether there is a realistic possibility the case will produce funds to pay the trustee and the unsecured creditors (the bankruptcy "estate"). Some states have statutes or rules that do not permit a case to just sit there for a long time. It may be dismissable for want of prosecution, which would not depend on the bankruptcy.
