SAO PAULO May 11 (Reuters) - A Brazilian judge has suspended a Thursday board meeting at steelmaker Usiminas scheduled to select senior management, court documents showed on Wednesday, as a bruising boardroom fight continues to weigh on a difficult turn-around.

Usiminas, known formally as Usinas Siderurgicas de Minas Gerais SA - and its shareholders Ternium SA and Nippon Steel - have filed lawsuits in recent weeks challenging the right of steelmaker Companhia Siderurgica Nacional, or CSN , to name representatives on the Usiminas board.
