Drew Peterson defense team slams Brodsky

Drew Peterson's defense team is slamming his former lead attorney Joel Brodsky, saying he was poorly equipped to handle a case of that magnitude.

A new court filing on Thursday asks the judge to throw out Peterson's conviction or at least giving him a new trial.

The scathing memo says Brodsky saw Peterson as his ticket to the legal elite and that his tactics were focused on self-glorification.

Brodsky said Thursday night that it's a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Peterson is scheduled to be back in court January 10 for a status hearing.
