GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Former U.S. senator and Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards has returned to the courtroom to help represent a 4-year-old Virginia boy in a medical malpractice case. 

Edwards is one of three attorneys representing the parents and guardians of a boy with brain damage and physical injuries they say occurred in December 2009. At that time, the boy was an infant in the care of Pitt County Memorial Hospital and an emergency room doctor. 

In 2012, Edwards faced six felony charges in a case involving nearly $1 million provided by two wealthy political donors to help hide his pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter as he sought the White House in 2008. 

A jury acquitted Edwards on one count of accepting illegal campaign contributions and deadlocked on the remaining five.
