Convicted "Mafia Cop" Louis Eppolito and his well-known attorney, Bruce Cutler, have just about parted ways, according to the latest court filings.

In a letter filed Friday with Brooklyn federal Judge Jack Weinstein, Cutler's co-counsel Bettina Schein, who also represented Eppolito during his recent racketeering trial, said the lawyers want out from the case. Her letter followed comments by Eppolito in an interview that he felt "abandoned" by the lawyers during the trial after they allegedly refused to allow him to testify.
