Attorney showdown at Drew Peterson hearing


JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Two feuding attorneys involved in the Drew Peterson case have gone face to face in court.

Peterson's former lead attorney Joel Brodsky took the stand Tuesday. He testified at a hearing to decide if the former suburban Chicago police officer deserves a new trial on grounds that he botched Peterson's murder trial. Brodsky's former colleague and now-nemesis Steve Greenberg called him to the stand. Greenberg questioned Brodsky.

The two have sparred in a bitter public feud recently. Brodsky left Peterson's legal team in November. But Greenberg is still on it.

Greenberg initially told the judge that Brodsky didn't want to take the stand. But the judge said Brodsky had no right to refuse and ordered Brodsky to testify.
