Sarah Talalay informs us of the latest on the Braman lawsuit.

The case was reassigned to Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Jeri Beth Cohen Thursday after Circuit Court Judge Pedro Echarte Jr. recused himself at the request of Bob Martinez, one of Braman’s attorneys. Martinez said in court papers that he discovered this week that he has a distant familial relationship with Echarte.

In a status hearing Friday afternoon, Cohen said her calendar was likely full until September. The defendants -- Miami-Dade County, the city of Miami and the Marlins -- would prefer a trial be held sooner. Cohen has agreed to ask the chief judge about reassigning the case yet again. She promised to have an answer by Tuesday.

And it just goes on and on and on....
