Piece of personal interest: Judge Steps Down in Trayvon Martin Case.
Victim Trayvon Martin, 17, and his killer, George Zimmerman.
The latest development in the Trayvon Martin case in the United States is that, as of April 18th 2012, Judge Jessica Reckseidler has recused herself from the trial; the case has now been reassigned to Judge Kenneth Lester.
It appears that she has stepped down due to her husband's position as an analyst following the case for media outlet CNN, which she views as a conflict of interest.
