Why can't I speak with a judge?

For the same reason the Judge won’t speak with the opposing side. You would not want the Judge to speak with the opposing parties and make a decision without hearing your side of the story. Therefore, in the interest of justice, a Judge will generally only address matters in scheduled proceeding where all parties involved have been properly notified.
