Greenville residents and courthouse-goers can expect to spot former U.S. senator and presidential candidate John Edwards in the coming weeks as he works as legal counsel in a medical malpractice case, returning to the courtroom for the first time since his political fallout.
Edwards, 60, is one of three lawyers representing the parents of a 4-year-old Virginia boy who was 3 months old in 2009 when he was under the care of physicians and staff at Pitt County Memorial Hospital, now Vidant Medical Center.
