Former Peterson attorney wants out of lawsuit
The former defense attorney for convicted murderer Drew Peterson has filed a motion asking to remove himself from a lawsuit involving the former Bolingbrook police sergeant.
Joel Brodsky made the filing on Monday. He once represented Peterson, whom Will County jurors convicted on killing his third wife Kathleen Savio. Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, went missing in 2007.
In the filing, Brodsky asked to withdraw as Peterson's attorney in a lawsuit filed by Savio's family. Brodsky's motion comes about a week after Peterson's current lawyers accused him of blowing the case through legal errors and "a smorgasbord of ethical violations."
Brodsky stepped down from the defense team last month. Peterson faces up to 60 years in prison when he is sentenced.
