7072.  Upon petition of the personal representative or other
interested person before entry of the order for final distribution of
the estate, a proceeding transferred under this article may be
retransferred to the court in which the proceeding was originally

conditions are satisfied:
   (a) Another person has become judge of the court where the
proceeding was originally commenced who is not disqualified to act in
the administration of the estate.
   (b) The convenience of the parties interested would be promoted by
