    But he decided his best case was in civil courts rather than criminal... not that Greenberg didn't deserve to be tried in criminal court but simply that his best case was in civil court.

    Yesterday, Spitzer spokesman Darren Dopp said the attorney general would not pursue criminal charges against Greenberg, a decision he said had been made in May, when Spitzer's office filed a civil complaint against Greenberg, another former AIG executive and the New York-based company itself.

    "We did that back in May when we first announced our complaint," he said. "That represented a decision that the case was best pursued in the civil courts."
