Anyone here have any ideas on how to handle sexism on the bench? I’m at my wits end in a case where my opposing counsel (white male and also a total jerk) is buddy-buddy with our presiding judge (also white male).

He also likes to hold all of these hearings as off record status conferences. Any strategies to fight this?
