CHICAGO (AP) -- One former and one current attorney for Drew Peterson are continuing their public feud over who's to blame for the suburban Chicago police officer's conviction last year of killing his third wife.
Peterson's one-time lead attorney Joel Brodsky has filed a 31-page lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court accusing current attorney Steve Greenberg of defaming him. It also names the Chicago Tribune and AOL's Patch news website. Brodsky and Greenberg began pointing fingers immediately after jurors convicted Peterson of drowning Kathleen Savio in her bathtub.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday says Greenberg circulated a letter accusing Brodsky of "single-handedly" losing Peterson's trial. Greenberg told the Chicago Sun-Times "truth is a defense" against the allegations.
The Tribune didn't have an immediate comment. And AOL Patch didn't return a message seeking comment.
