During a post-verdict court date this morning, convicted murderer, Drew Peterson, and Attorney Steven Greenberg had a friendly 30-minute tête-à-tête.
At the end of their talk, Greenberg asked the court to continue his motion to withdraw until November 16th at Peterson’s request.
Asked about the postponement attorney Greenberg quipped, “I love Drew, Drew loves me“. But Attorney Joel Brodsky, who had filed the motion to terminate Greenberg claiming that the veteran attorney of over 100 murder trials had not done his job, stated to reporters that Peterson is postponing Greenberg’s firing merely to ensure that his attorney/client privilege is intact while he confronts Greenberg (ostensibly over his poor performance).
Considering the very public feud that took place last month between Brodsky and Greenberg, one can only guess that the truth of the matter lies somewhere in the middle. One might also wonder if Greenberg is considering returning to the fold only on certain terms.
Peterson’s sentencing date is still set for November 26th and a court date for hearings is scheduled for October 18.
