ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Prosecutors and defense attorneys say they're ready for next month's trial of former Florida GOP leader Jim Greer, who is charged with funneling party money to his private company.

Attorneys told Circuit Judge Marc Lubet Tuesday they are ready to move forward with Greer's Feb. 11 trial.

Lubet is now handling family law cases but has decided to remain the judge in Greer's criminal case.

Some of the most prominent Florida Republicans are named as witnesses for Jim Greer's trial. Greer is pleading not guilty to theft and other charges.

The trial is expected to last two weeks.
