Zimmerman Judge to Step Aside

Judge Jessica Recksiedler is expected to hand over control of the George Zimmerman trial to another felony judge on Wednesday after admitting to a potential conflict of interest. Recksiedler told attorneys last Friday that her husband is a partner at the firm of reputable Orlando lawyer Mark NeJame, whom CNN hired as a legal analyst to comment on the Trayvon Martin case. Zimmerman’s lawyer then called for a new judge on Monday. Recksiedler will be replaced by one of three remaining felony judges in Seminole County.
