What is a Peremptory Challenge?

A peremptory challenge is a challenge to a judge (or juror) that does not require a stated cause or reason. In jurisdictions where a peremptory challenge against a judge is permitted pursuant to the civil rules, usually only one challenge per action is permitted and the challenge must be made very early in the action.
