This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The first witness in today’s Peterson hearing has been called to the stand by the defense.

Reem Odeh, a criminal defense attorney who was once a partner with Joel Brodsky and on the Peterson defense team, is being questioned by Steve Greenberg.

Their business partnership ended in 2010.

Odeh said she had nothing to do with hiring to the PR firm the “publicity agency.”  She added that Brodsky had discussions with her on many occasions that hiring a public relations firm could benefit himself and the firm.

Odeh also testified that this morning when she was coming into the courthouse, Brodsky uttered words to the effect – “watch and see about everything that I know.”

Odeh said she perceived that statement to be “intimidating and threatening.”
