Is there a legal principle or process that can be used to ask a court in the US - either at the time of filing or during a legal proceeding - to consider recusing an attorney from the opposing side due to a perceived conflict of interest?

What is the name(s) of the process or principle? (So individual state codes can be referred to).

  • Any particular state you're interested in? – cpast Oct 23 '15 at 3:04

You can't normally ask the court to "recuse" an attorney, because "recusal" is normally restricted to the judge leaving the case. The more common term is moving to disqualify opposing counsel.
