Zimmerman judge recused herself

| No Comments

Circuit Judge Jessica Recksiedler recused herself from the George Zimmerman trial due to a conflict of interest, MSNBC reported.

The attorney for Zimmerman, Mark O'Mara, asked that Recksiedler be removed from the case, according to ABC News, because her husband is in the same law firm as a legal analyst for CNN who has commented on the case.

"The goal is to have a new judge in place in order to make that hearing," court spokeswoman Michelle Kennedy said of Zimmerman's impending hearing this Friday.

Considering these setbacks, the state and attorneys estimate that the trial will not be settled until 2013, according to ABC News.
