John Edwards has his day job back—he's returned to court as a trial attorney, reports the Daily Reflector of Greenville, NC. Edwards is representing a Virginia family in a medical malpractice suit, and he was grilling potential jurors this week. The former senator and VP candidate was a successful trial lawyer before getting into politics, notes USA Today, and he recently opened a new firm, EdwardsKirby, that will handle cases on everything from personal injury to civil rights discrimination. Daughter Cate, an attorney herself, works at the firm. (Edwards' last high-profile court appearance ended well for him, when feds dropped their campaign finance case.)
