    Zimmerman Judge to Step Aside

    SANFORD, FL - APRIL 13:  Circuit Judge Jessica Recksiedler during a short status hearing in the the second degree murder case for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin against George Zimmerman on April 13, 2012 in Sanford, Florida. Attorneys are asking for a bond hearing next Friday and for the judge to remove herself from the case because her husband is a member of a law firm whose founder is a legal analyst on television.

    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.
