Two defendants, Jose Maria Marin of Brazil and Aaron Davidson of Miami, appeared Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court for a status conference in the government’s sprawling FIFA corruption case.

Marin’s attorney, Charles Stillman, attributed the delay to not being able to find a U.S. institution to issue a bond backed by a “valuable piece of property” he owns in Brazil. U.S. District Court Judge Raymond Dearie, who oversees the case, gave Stillman until Jan. 15 to secure the bond.
