    Judge Jessica Recksiedler, who was assigned to hear the George Zimmerman case, disclosed that her husband works for the law firm of Mark NeJame, who is acting as the CNN analyst on the case. In a short hearing, she told the case’s lawyers of her conflict, which could allow Zimmerman’s attorney to request her removal from the case. ZImmerman’s lawyer says the issue worries him and he is considering asking for another judge next week. Zimmerman, who is being charged with second-degree murder in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, will enter a plea on May 29 and will seek bail on April 20.
