Drew Peterson's new lawyers just filed a Motion for a New Trial Based on the Ineffective Assistance of Attorney Joel Brodsky, a complete copy of which is embedded below. This motion is full of juicy stuff. The allegations of ineffective assistance are contained on pages 5 and 6. Among them:
- Joel Brodsky had never tried a felony jury trial before this one, much less a murder case.
- Joel Brodsky refused to file a speedy trial demand for Drew Peterson, which lead to a 3 year delay and allowed the State enough time to enact "Drew's Law."
- Joel Brodsky assured Drew Peterson that they would both make money from the pretrial publicity.
- Joel Brodsky threatened to reveal confidential information if Drew tried to fire him. (I wonder what confidential information he was talking about...???)
Attached as exhibit to the motion is a letter written to Joel Brodsky by Steve Greenberg. This letter is GREAT!! It contains many more juicy allegations than are contained in the body of the motion. I highly suggest that you spend 5 minutes reading it.
