Speaking as a member and not as an ATS staff member, I would strongly advise NOT posting rants about ongoing litigation to the Internet where your words could come back, inside of a courtroom, to bite you on the proverbial backside.
I speak from experience as I recently had a single Facebook post saying that I felt good one day used against me in a courtroom during a disability hearing.

I understand, and sympathise with your incredulity. I believe that the judges connection to the individual in question is grounds for a re-hearing of this case by a different judge, or indeed an appeals court, perhaps with a focus on the improper nature of the ruling given that the judge should have been recused from the case (assuming there is not a different term for a judge removing themselves, as opposed to a lawyer doing it).
This seems like an abuse of the law, if not a blatant breakage of it, and I would recommend seeking good counsel on this matter from as many sources as possible. The simple fact is, that if the situation regards the property in question is as you say it has been since the early 1900s, then the individual who has been screwing the neighbourhood has no business trying to Gaylord it over the rest of the town in this manner.

My advice would be to contact the attorney general and go from there. This sounds like corruption. I don't go for that land-thieving crap. Another tool these days is Facebook. Bring awareness to the community. Maybe even organize a community meeting about this. When you go up against somebody who has money and friends in high places, it can get tough quick.
