Default 2004 Verona Brakes applying by themselves

The first trip of the day and traveling about 5 miles at 50mph I first notice the steering wheel start to shake and steadily gets worse. That's because the brakes start to apply and get tighter till they are full on.

The first day after stopping and going and eventually just driving through the set brakes they did release. So, the next day the same thing happened. This time I drove down the road in the direction of my Auto repair shop and sure enough after six miles the steering wheel started shaking (Brakes applying to warped rotor) and by the time I drove into the repair place the brakes were fully on. That was a week ago, still in shop. They had replaced a front caliber last month on the front passenger side. I felt it applying and when I checked the temperature of the rotor with my infra-red meter it was at 223 degrees Farenheit. The other 3 rotors were 95 to 100 degrees.
This show be interesting. Sounds like the brake fluid may be heating up and expanding and causing the calibers to press on the rotors.

Still no fix. This seems to have my mechanics stumped.
