The case of "the broad discretion of a judge"

It is not clear what the broad discretion of a judge allows. For example:

  1. An order issued two days before the motion was filed. Can a judge back date when a document was filed or when an order was issued, not retroactive, but to change the court date stamp.
    If a party is shown to have lied under oath (repeatedly), what are the consequences?
  2. If an attorney refuses to appear when ordered, is shown to have made misrepresentations of fact and law, what are the consequences? The BBO did not care.
  3. If a judge consolidates a complaint into a trial on the first day and refuses to allow the inclusion of relevant evidence, is that legal?
  4. If it is proven that opposing counsel has refused to provide evidence before a trial, as ordered, and the trial proceeds is legal?
  5. If a child tells the court clinic that they are being abused and want to go into foster care and the court bury the report. ... Later, interviewing again, after some serious emotional abuse and representing the abused child in a poor light – completely neglecting the plea for help.
  6. The court actually distributed the verdict to opposing counsel and court staff before the hearing. Specifically, that the defendant was going to jail. No evidence or testimony was allowed. Ironically, opposing counsel presented evidence that refuted the allegations. The guards technically seized the defendant before the judge issued the order.

… this list can go on and on…
