Former Drew Peterson lawyer fights to keep financial records sealed

Drew Peterson’s former attorney is fighting accusations that he took the case for his own personal gain.

According to the Chicago Sun-times, Joel Brodsky is trying to keep Peterson’s current attorneys from obtaining his financial records.

Court papers filed by Peterson’s attorneys Friday accused Brodsky¬† of parading Peterson “around as a meal ticket…not as part of any intelligent, reasonable, well thought out competent legal strategy.”

They also claim Brodsky ruined Peterson’s chance of acquittal by purposefully playing up media coverage of the case.

Judge Edward Burmilla issued Brodsky one more week to comply with the subpoena. Brodsky says the supoena violates attorney-client privilege.

    There's a nice bit of irony. It looks like this lawyer needs a lawyer himself.
