“It was a dictatorship.”
That is how Steve Greenberg has described working on the Peterson case with Joel Brodsky.
Judge Burmila had asked Greenberg why neither he nor any of the other members of the defense team expressed their concern about the calling of Harry Smith to the stand or express the turmoil that had been plaguing the defense team. “Why didn’t you come to me and tell me that this conundrum had arrived?” Burmila said.
Greenberg explained to Burmila that when he attempted to discuss issues with Brodsky sometimes he would get a bump or a shove. Brodsky clearly unhappy with that statement made an audible “ah” and shook his head in disbelief in the overflow room.
