Zimmerman's attorney asks judge to step down

Posted:

(WFLX) - Controversy continues surrounding the judge overseeing the Trayvon Martin case.

The attorney representing George Zimmerman, the man who shot the teen, is asking the judge step down over a potential conflict of interest. Zimmerman's attorney filed that request Monday in the Seminole County Circuit Court.

The issue involves Judge Jessica Recksiedler's husband, who is a law partner in the same firm as an attorney who provides CNN legal insight on the case.
