The Tribune Co. and AOL Patch are among the defendants in a defamation lawsuit filed by attorney Joel Brodsky against one-time defense team colleague Steven Greenberg in the high-profile Drew Peterson spousal murder case, the Chicago Tribune reported last week.

Brodsky filed a complaint, including counts alleging defamation, false light invasion of privacy and violation of Illinois Deceptive Trade Practices, in Cook County Circuit Court, based on a letter written by Greenberg published by the Chicago Tribune that the plaintiff claims portrays him as incompetent and untruthful.

Peterson, a former Bollingbrook (Ill.) police officer, was convicted of murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004 (see "TUOL" post 1/11/10). Brodsky, who withdrew from co-representation with Greenberg of Peterson, contends the latter's letter purportedly fixes blames on him for the unsuccessful defense, according to the Tribune article.
