Speaking with the Judge about your case outside of open court is defined as ex-parte communication. Judges are strictly prohibited from engaging in ex-parte communication as dictated by the Judicial Cannons of Ethics. This communication includes email, text messages, phone calls, and personal contact. Therefore, any communication with the Judge concerning a matter that is before his court or any matter that will be before his court may only occur in open court in front of the bench.
