"L.A. Law: Whistle Stop (#8.21)" (1994)
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Oh, Stan, I been looking for you.
Stan Holzman: What's up?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I wanna talk to you about John Rosten.
Stan Holzman: Oh, come on, Tommy.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: It's gotta be another way to do this.
Stan Holzman: I thought we already had this discussion. Whether we like it or not, three strikes is the law.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: What if you reduce the charge to a misdemeanor? One-year County Jail?
Stan Holzman: The guy receives $6,000 worth of stolen goods. How do you make that into a misdemeanor?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I think we can figure some special circumstances. I get the conviction, John Rosten does life.
Stan Holzman: That's right.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Stan, he got caught with stolen doping supplies.
Stan Holzman: Before that, he committed two armed robberies. Go for the felony, Tommy. And go for the conviction.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: He did those robberies and serve time for 15 years ago. What happened to a little prosecutorial discretion?
Stan Holzman: The three-strikes laws what happened.
[Heads in the elevator]
Stan Holzman: My job is not to redefine it, but to enforce it. As is across-the-board. No exceptions. Go for the felony, Tommy.

[Judge Walker looking up the case file]
Judge Carolyn Walker: Well, I'm sure that once you're in there, whatever ambivalent you have will soon give way to that well-worn killer instinct of yours.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: And Morse the pity, I win. And this guy goes away for life?
[Tommy and Judge Walker take a seat]
Judge Carolyn Walker: Look the guy is committed to violent felonies in the past that we know about. God knows how many we don't know about and having committed a third...
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Non-violent felony.
Judge Carolyn Walker: A felony nevertheless, he's got to pay the consequences.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I hate it.

Judge Carolyn Walker: [Nodded] Who's the judge?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Uh, Arthur Bryson.
[Judge Walker sits next to Tommy and talk]

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Why?
Judge Carolyn Walker: Remember what I told you I live with the man for a couple of years?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Mm-hmm.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Well, that man was Arthur Bryson.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Does he know about us?
Judge Carolyn Walker: Tommy, we've been seen each other for 3 months, uh, the courthouse parking attendant knows about us.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Well, it's, see how it goes, I really don't think it's necessary the relationships been over for a while and we're very cordial one another and... as a rule, Arthur's pretty fair minded.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Who else have you slept with around this courthouse?
Judge Carolyn Walker: I don't think you really wanna know the answer to that, do you?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Ho-ho. You slut.

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Mr. Dorsett, on or around March 10, 1994, did you have a conversation with the defendant John Rosten regarding the copper pipe?
Ms. Krieger: Objection, calls for hearsay.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: The mission against interest.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Overrule. The witness may answer.
Albert Dorsett: I told John that my brothers was planning on stealing the load of copper pipe from Strolls dice building supply. I also told him that if he held in his yard to a buyer was found, could make himself firing books.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: What was his response?
Albert Dorsett: He said it was okay.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Did you actually see the pipe after it was stolen and Mr. Rosten's possession?
Albert Dorsett: Yes, I did. I saw it in his garage.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I have nothing further questions.

Ms. Krieger: Mr. Dorsett, when ask Mr. Rosten to hold on to the copper piping, you made no mention of the fact that it was stolen, isn't that true?
Albert Dorsett: Uh, no. That's not true.
Ms. Krieger: Do you have any reason to lie here today, sir?
Albert Dorsett: No.
Ms. Krieger: Isn't it true that at the time of your arrest, you offer to testify against Mr. Rosten and the Maya brothers in return for leniency?
Albert Dorsett: I often to tell the truth.
Ms. Krieger: What if anything if the district attorney's office offer you in exchange for testifying.
Albert Dorsett: They would charge me with a misdemeanor.
Ms. Krieger: Are you familiar with California's three-strike law?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Objection. Sidebar, Your Honor.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Approach.
[A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney and Ms. Krieger approached the sidebar of Judge Arthur Bryson]
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Your Honor, three-strikes laws irrelevant, we all know that the jury's not suppose to consider punishment, we deciding guilt or innocence. Ms. Krieger's only making reference to get sympathy for a client.
Ms. Krieger: Your Honor, this law is entirely relevant, it goes to impeach Mr. Mullaney's star witness who was facing his third strike when he cut a deal with the D.A.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Is that true?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Yes.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Those of the credibility a witness. Objection's overruled. Stand back.

Ms. Krieger: Mr. Dorsett, at the time of your arrest, you had two felony convictions, one for burglary and one for armed robbery, correct?
Albert Dorsett: Yeah, that's correct.
Ms. Krieger: Are you aware the fact that had you been charged with the third felony, you'll be facing a mandatory sentence of 25 to life?
Albert Dorsett: Yes.
Ms. Krieger: What sentence did you receive as a result of your deal?
Albert Dorsett: I got 3 years. Probation.
Ms. Krieger: I have nothing further.
Judge Arthur Bryson: The witness may step down. This court is adjourned for lunch until 2 p.m.
John Rosten: Mr. Mullaney, would you please give me 5 minutes to the room, so I can explained to you how this all happened?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Ms. Krieger, would you please advise your client? This constitute in it's inappropriate communications.
[But John begs]
John Rosten: I just want to see who I am! I'm not the type of person to be doing this to me!
Ms. Krieger: Come on, John.
John Rosten: Mr. Mullaney, please, 5 minutes! That's all I ask!
[But the court officer instructed John Rosten to do so. And officer takes the defendant back into custody, and now leaves. Mr. Mullaney and Ms. Krieger is going take a break for lunch]

Judge Carolyn Walker: So what's the problem?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: There's no problem. It's just I'm not sure if the weekend go away.
Judge Carolyn Walker: I knew I get to this.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: So what's out there exactly?
Judge Carolyn Walker: What do you mean it's fifth-round you ever been in big trouble?
Maitre D': Look here your table right now, judge.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Thanks, Rudy.

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: It's far, isn't it?
Judge Carolyn Walker: Well, it takes 2 hours to get there.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: You don't think it would be more relaxing and you just staying into town and salt?
Judge Carolyn Walker: No, I don't.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: All right.
Judge Carolyn Walker: [laughing] Look, I have a sweet reserved, the hot tub and a fireplace. Plus massages schedule for both days. I think we should take advantage of it, don't you?
Judge Arthur Bryson: I heartily concur.
[Judge Carolyn Walker turned behind her is Judge Arthur Bryson]
Judge Carolyn Walker: Hi, Arthur.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Hi, Carolyn.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Judge Bryson.
[Tommy shaking hands with Judge Bryson]
Judge Arthur Bryson: Counselor.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Arthur.
Judge Culbert: Hi, Carolyn.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Good to meet you, Tommy Mullaney.
Judge Culbert: Judge Culbert, it's a pleasure.
Judge Arthur Bryson: What's he look like?
Maitre D': Give me 5 minutes.
Judge Culbert: I'll see you at 2:00.

Ms. Krieger: Mr. Rosten, how did you come to have $6,000 worth of stolen copper pipe in your garage?
John Rosten: He said he bought piper plumbing job, I needed someplace to story.
Ms. Krieger: Is it your testimony that he made no mention of the fact that the pipe was stolen?
John Rosten: Yes.
Ms. Krieger: Following your arrest, did you signed this confession stating that you did have knowledge that the pipe was stolen?
John Rosten: Yes.
Ms. Krieger: Why did you signed it if it wasn't true?
John Rosten: Cause the cop told me they have me get to right, that they could go easy on me if I was cooperative.
Ms. Krieger: Have you ever been convicted of a felony before this?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Sidebar, Your Honor.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Approach.
[A.D.A. Mullaney and Ms. Krieger approached the sidebar of Judge Bryson]
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Counsels China's slip into this faces, strike three, Your Honor, I believe that to be both irrelevant and prejudicial.
Ms. Krieger: The fact that he was facing his third strike, men think he's only chance of winning fee was having to reduce to misdemeanor, that's what the cops promised him, that's what they liked him about.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I've been advised that no promises were made.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Counselor, whether or not your client was misled. There's no evidence that the confession was coerced, as such I find testimony has to the so-called three strikes law, other type of sentence Mr. Rosten is likely to receive if found guilty to be prejudicial rather than probative. You to make no mention either one. Stand back.

Ms. Krieger: Mr. Rosten, how long has it been since you were convicted of a crime?
John Rosten: More than 15 years.
Ms. Krieger: You gainfully employed?
John Rosten: Yes. I've been working at a hardware store for the past 12 years.
Ms. Krieger: Do you permitted to operate the register, handle cash?
John Rosten: Yes.
Ms. Krieger: You ever been accuse of stealing anything while you're working there?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Objection.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Sustained.
Ms. Krieger: Okay. I have nothing further.

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: According to police records, you and Albert Dorset were arrested for burglary together back in 1975?
Ms. Krieger: Objection, half-bad answer inadmissible, I moved for an immediate mistrial.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Defense counsel brought up his record on direction open the door.
Judge Arthur Bryson: So, she did. The objection's overruled.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Is your testimony that knowing Mr. Dorset's history, you had no suspicion, no in clinking at all that the copper pipe he was asking you to look after was stolen?
John Rosten: I didn't think about it.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Were you lying when you confessed to the police?
John Rosten: Yes, they told me I was the only way they could not get down to a misdemeanor.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Wouldn't you agree that you have a far greater incentive fly today than you did on the day you were arrested?
John Rosten: I don't deserve to get life imprisonment over this, sir!
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Move to strike.
John Rosten: I got 2 children!
Judge Arthur Bryson: Mr. Rosten.
John Rosten: A girl who's 7 and a boy who's 9!
Judge Arthur Bryson: Mr. Rosten, that's enough. The jury's instructed to disregard the defendant's outburst. Mr. Mullaney?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: No more questions.
[A.D.A. Mullaney is done]

Ms. Krieger: In a reasonable person, look at the prosecution's evidence and not has doubts as to Mr. Rosten's guilt. I think a reasonable person could have strong doubts, Mr. Rosten was in custody for 5 hours before he confessed. He was scared. And the police we're telling him over and over again, that he was as good as convicted, and that it was to his advantage to confess, and he believed them. The only other evidence comes from a man with two violent felony convictions, who under the three strikes law is looking at a possible life sentence if convicted. A man who would do or say anything to get out of that. Thanks to the DA, that man is a free man. While the defendant, a man who has led an exemplary life for more than 15 years, a man who also has two felony convictions, but stop being a criminal long ago is sitting here facing life imprisonment.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Objection, move to strike.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Objection is sustained. Defense Counsel's last remark is stricken. The jury instructed to disregard. Ms. Krieger, you are treading dangerously close to a mistrial.
[Ms. Krieger will be careful and continue the closing. Ms. Krieger comforts John Rosten]
Ms. Krieger: John Rosten says he did not know the pipe was stolen. I ask you as reasonable men and women to give him the benefit of the doubt.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: All I ask is that you look at the facts. $6,000 of stolen pipe was found in Mr. Rosten's yard. By Mr. Rosten's own testimony, the man who last in the store the pipe Albert Dorsett had been his partner in crime, Mr. Rosten knew Dorsett was a thief, not a plumber. He knew the pipe was stolen, he admitted so himself.
[Mr. Mullaney look up the writing in paper]
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: In writing. Now that's something innocent people don't usually do, and despite Ms. Krieger's suggestion, there's no evidence of any kind that Mr. Rosten's confession was coerced. As jurors, your job is not to consider what penalty lies ahead for Mr. Rosten if he's convicted. My job is to present you with those facts which I believe prove John Rosten's guilt. Your job is to examine those facts and make a decision. I'm confident that having done so, you will find John Rosten guilty.

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Oh, oh.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Be careful.
[A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney and Judge Carolyn Walker packing their bags]
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: So what kind of massage did you schedule?
Judge Carolyn Walker: Basics she has to.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Which is what?
Judge Carolyn Walker: You never had her ask her to massage.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I've never had any massage.
Judge Carolyn Walker: You're kidding.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Well, not everybody has massages, Carolyn.
Judge Carolyn Walker: [sighs] Stood it and stood through it tough, aren't you?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Oh, yeah.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Yeah, good.
[Ringing the doorbell]
Judge Carolyn Walker: I can't believe never have massage.
[Turn on the light is Judge Arthur Bryson]
Judge Carolyn Walker: Arthur? Hey, Arthur.
Judge Arthur Bryson: I want to talk to you.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Okay.
Judge Arthur Bryson: I want to go somewhere else. I don't want to talk here.
Judge Carolyn Walker: It was really isn't a good time, whatever it is, can we talk about it tomorrow?
Judge Arthur Bryson: No, I don't want to talk tomorrow. I want to talk right now.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Uh, why don't I step out for a minute, huh?
Judge Carolyn Walker: No. We'll talk tomorrow.

Judge Arthur Bryson: Everyday for the past week, this son of a bitch has been standing in my courtroom. I have had to look at him, I have had to listen to him. Up until today, I can handle it. I think Mr. Mullaney will bear me out when I say that I think I've been fair my rulings, and judicial, and my temperament. When however I heard, you're going way too big surrogate together for the weekend, something in me just... gave out.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Arthur, pull yourself together and go home. If you don't do that, I'm gonna have to call the police.
Judge Arthur Bryson: Oh, is he capable of throwing me out?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Why are you challenging me, sir?
Judge Arthur Bryson: Yes, sir! Right here and now, I'm challenging you. I - I want you to demonstrate how much you're willing to risk for this late.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Stop it.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Carolyn. Look, why don't we go outside and talk this...
Judge Arthur Bryson: Take your hand off me! You have no idea how much I love you.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I think it's time to leave, Your Honor.

Judge Carolyn Walker: You pack?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Yeah.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Are you miserable?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Your friend the judge came over here last night. I thought he was kind of a sad guy. You didn't look sad today.
Judge Carolyn Walker: You admire him for what he did?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Yeah.
[Tommy stop smoking]
Judge Carolyn Walker: Place his own gratification over the doing of his job, I find that contemptible.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: His job is to administer justice.
Judge Carolyn Walker: His job was to administer the law. "Three strikes, You're out" is the law.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: It just stinking law.
Judge Carolyn Walker: I happened to disagree with you, but even if I didn't. He did today what he did last night, he took over, he anointed himself King.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: All I can say is that I wish I had had the courage act on my convictions to the extend he did. I wish I had had courage to anoint myself King.
Judge Carolyn Walker: Well, I'll tell you what, more away this weekend? I'll let you protect.
[Tommy would like that]

Tommy Mullaney: We appealed. The court ruled that since Halifax is based in California, we can try it here.
Arnie Becker: Foreign workers suing in our courts? Good luck.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: It's worse than you think. DePalma is a solo practitioner from East L.A. Halifax is represented by Breech and Spitzer.
Jonathan Rollins: Those guys are pit bulls.
Arnie Becker: Kiss this one goodbye.
Tommy Mullaney: Look. We know it's a long shot. But what that company did to these people was a crime.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: But you can't write every wrong in the world. And this is eating up billable hours...
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Hours aren't the point here.
Stuart Markowitz: This is about conscience.
Arnie Becker: Come on, folks. We have to have some fiscal responsibility...
Jonathan Rollins: Yeah, but how far are we expected to go?
Leland McKenzie: [to Mullaney] Before this goes any further, I want to talk to Mr. DePalma and the class rep.
[to Brackman]
Leland McKenzie: Anything else, Douglas?
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: No. We're adjourned.

Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Gentlemen, when we took this on, you both agreed we should settle.
Alex DePalma: We asked for 4 million, they shot it down.
Leland McKenzie: So try again.
Alex DePalma: Mr. McKenzie, we are ready for trial. We've got a solid case on the facts. Mr. Campos has spend 6 years gathering data and overseeing medical tests down in Honduras. These people are counting on us.
Alvaro Campos: 30% of the workers at my plantation are like me. We can never have children.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: But you still have to prove a link to the pesticide. We all know how hard that is.
Leland McKenzie: The firm is in no position to carry this through a trial and appeals that could take years.
Alex DePalma: I didn't come here so you could broker a settlement and walk away with a big fee. I needed Tommy Mullaney to win.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: You needed an experienced firm to back you. And we're telling you to settle.
Tommy Mullaney: Halifax isn't interested in settling. They want a verdict that discourages other foreign suits. The whole chemical industries behind them.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Great. Now we're taking on the chemical lobby.
Leland McKenzie: Look, why, why don't make another offer, try asking for 2 million?
Alex DePalma: That's a joke! After fees, it's barely three thousand per man.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: You'd be lucky to get that for Third World workers.
Alvaro Campos: Third World? Does that mean our lives have less value than yours?
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: I wasn't saying that.
Alex DePalma: Yeah, then what were you saying?
Leland McKenzie: He's talking about the average wager.
Tommy Mullaney: Guys, uh, let me have a few minutes here, okay? I'll meet back you in my office.
[DePalma and Campos exit]
Tommy Mullaney: Thanks.
[Mullaney closes the door]

Leland McKenzie: I'm sorry I let you talk us into this.
Tommy Mullaney: Listen, Leland. We're talking about 15 million in damages here, with possible punitives beyond that. Our split would be at least two million five.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: If you win and if it holds up on appeal.
Tommy Mullaney: We get a verdict in our favor, they'll settle big before they appeal. I'm telling you, guys, we can pull this off.

Tommy Mullaney: Mr. Campos, when did you find out that you were sterile?
Alvaro Campos: 7 years ago. My wife and I have been married 3 years and still no children. The doctor said I had no sperm.
Tommy Mullaney: Did the doctor offer any hope that you could ever have children?
Alvaro Campos: No. He said this part of me is dead. I was 28 years old.
Tommy Mullaney: What made you think the pesticide Trichlor caused sterility in yourself and the other men?
Alvaro Campos: We worked in a banana fields of the Del Sol plantation, putting Trichlor on plants. Before Trichlor there were many children. This year, only five new students at the village.
[DePalma hands Mullaney what looks like a lightweight, three-foot jackhammer with a canister attached?]
Tommy Mullaney: Can you tell us what this is, sir?
Alvaro Campos: It's the tool we use to push the Trichlor into the ground.
Tommy Mullaney: You inject the pesticide into the roots of the plants, like this?
[Mullaney points the device toward the floor, pushes]
Alvaro Campos: Yes. Sometimes, you hit a stone, it comes back in your face and eyes, on your legs. It's like fire on the skin. It makes you so sick you vomit.
Tommy Mullaney: Did anyone ever warn you or the other workers that Trichlor could make you sterile or was in any way harmful to your health?
Alvaro Campos: No, never.
Tommy Mullaney: Mr. Campos, what does it mean to a Honduran man to know he can never father a child?
Alvaro Campos: There's nothing is worse. This is not losing a hand or an eye. If you cannot make children, you are not a man.
Tommy Mullaney: Thank you, sir. Nothing further.

Lawyer Russell Spitzer: Mr. Campos, did you ever have gonorrhea?
Tommy Mullaney: Objection! Irrelevant!
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: I'm exploring other potential causes of Mr. Campos' sterility, Your Honor.
Judge Robert Fellmeth: Overruled. The witness will answer.
Alvaro Campos: Yes. I was 17 years old. But the doctor said I was completely cured, there were no long-time effects. And I am not the only one who sterile, there are 400 others.
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: Isn't it a common for men in your culture to visit prostitutes?
Alex DePalma: Objection! Irrelevant and racist!
Judge Robert Fellmeth: Sustained. Watch it, Mr. Spitzer.
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: I'm sorry, Your Honor. Mr. Campos, alcohol abuse can make men infertile. How many cantinas are there in your little village?
Alvaro Campos: I don't know.
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: 35, by my information. That's one bar for every 40 men in town. Sounds like a pretty happy place.
Tommy Mullaney: Objection!
Judge Robert Fellmeth: Mr. Spitzer.
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: I'll move on, Your Honor.
[Spitzer hands a piece of paper to Campos]
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: Mr. Campos, you said you were never warned about potential health risks from using Trichlor. This is a label from a drum of Trichlor. As you can see, it's in Spanish. Could you please translate for the jury?
Alvaro Campos: [Reading] "Do not swallow, inhale vapors or make contact with skin and eyes."
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: So you were warned. But you ignored the warning and, uh, used the pesticide carelessly?
Alvaro Campos: We did nothing careless. And many men cannot read.
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: But you can, Mr. Campos. And as a crew leader, weren't you obligated to make sure that everyone wore protective clothing and face masks when applying this pesticide?
Alvaro Campos: I asked the fruit company for these things. And I was told me to use my bananas across my face. And I was told if I ask more questions, I could lose my job.
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: It sounds to me like your complaint is with the foreign company. But I guess a Honduran fruit company doesn't have the deep pocket dinero of American chemical giant.
Tommy Mullaney: Objection!
Judge Robert Fellmeth: Sustained.
Lawyer Russell Spitzer: Withdrawn. Nothing further.

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Listen, if you're not leaving, I'll see you back in my office.
Tommy Mullaney, Sr.: I came to California to spend some quality time together.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: It's almost 30 years? And suddenly you're taking any interest?
Tommy Mullaney, Sr.: I was always there for you, and don't forget it.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Yeah, pop, whatever you say, huh?
Tommy Mullaney, Sr.: Are you calling me a liar?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Ah. Here we go.
Tommy Mullaney, Sr.: Answer me!
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: You answer me!

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Years go by, I'm pitching no ones catching. Now all of a sudden you show up pretend that we're related? What's this all about, pop, huh?
Tommy Mullaney, Sr.: Nothing.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I want to know.
Tommy Mullaney, Sr.: Never mind.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: No, you tell me.
Tommy Mullaney, Sr.: I'm dying.

Arnie Becker: How much they get?
Ann Kelsey: Oh, my God.
Jonathan Rollins: Robbery.
Leland McKenzie: Well, it's, uh, apparently not the motive. He has $200.00 in his wallet when he was admitted to Cedars.
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Where did this happen?
Leland McKenzie: Westside. Outside a restaurant Andrew Cleese?
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Andrew Cleese?
Arnie Becker: You know the place?
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Uh, yeah, it rings the bell.
Stuart Markowitz: So is he gonna miss his own awards luncheon?
Leland McKenzie: Well, I hope not. If this condition remains stable, we'll let him come home tomorrow. In his absence, we'll keep this brief. Roxanne?
Roxanne Melman: Okay, first up we...

[Raymond Holtz and his wife Patricia is speaking with the reporters in the press. A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney and Lawyer Brian La Porte find out what's going on outside the courtroom]
Raymond Holtz: I mean you just have question an assistant that would even entertain the possibility of letting a brutal killer like this go free only after 8 years. What's happening here? It's not only...
[Holtz keeping talking to the press. Tommy light the cigarette and smoke]
Brian La Porte: What the hell is he doing?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: He let some civil rights.
Raymond Holtz: ...protecting criminal's rights over those of his victims.
[Mr. Holtz continues talking to reporters and make a statement]
Brian La Porte: Holtz can't do this, Tommy. For God's sakes, he's right outside the jury room.
[Brian will go back to the courtroom and report it to the judge in the judge's chamber]
Raymond Holtz: Watch it with David Orcott get a second chance. My daughter should sure as hell will get a second chance. And don't let David Orcott go free, as don't let him get away with murder, you all know that!

Brian La Porte: My client can no longer possibly get a fair hearing. Mr. Holtz made inflammatory statement.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Mr. Holtz has a right to free speech.
Brian La Porte: Move for a mistrial.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: What?
Judge Donald Phillips: Denied.
Brian La Porte: Mr. Holtz has maligned my client in the press daily. He seems intent on creating an atmosphere for a lynch mob. At a very least, I request a gag be impose.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: This is ridiculous. He's a non party.
Judge Donald Phillips: He's right, Mr. La Porte. I have no authority to impose a gag. The jury has been admonished to avoid press coverages of the trial.
Raymond Holtz: Your Honor, may I say something?
Judge Donald Phillips: No. You may listen. I can't prevent you from speaking to reporters. But I can damn well keep you from doing so inside this courthouse.
Raymond Holtz: You yourself said I had a first amendment right.
Judge Donald Phillips: Which is out way by Mr. Orcott's right to a fair trial. If you want to be heard, you do it off county property. Because if you pull a stunt like this again, you can expect to spend the night in jail.


"L.A. Law: How Am I Driving? (#8.20)" (1994)
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: [Closing up file. Knocking at the door] Yeah.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: You wanted to see me?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Yeah, I did. Have just seen internal memo that you've got criminal investigators assigned to tail Arnold Becker?
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: Mm-hmm. It's in connection with the criminal investigation.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Are you aware that he's a former law partner of mine?
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: Yeah.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: So, were you planning on saying something from you at some point?
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: No, I wasn't. Was I obliged, too.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I think you were. I think common courtesy would have suggested that a word to a colleague would have been in order.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: When I conduct investigations, there are few things more important to me than being courteous.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I want to know what this is about, Belinda.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: It's about the Lambert case. That when I believe you're familiar with.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: There's no basis for criminal investigation in the Lambert case.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: I think there is. I think what Becker did was obstruction of justice.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Assume that's true what he did is done, there's no ongoing crime being committed, there's no reason for having Becker under surveillance.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: Given that the case is on my desk, Tommy. I think that's a determination to be made by me.

A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: All right.
[A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney gets up from his desk and closed the door]
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: Look, Belinda, I know that you and Arnold Becker were briefly involved with each other, assuming there is a case to be made here. It is not appropriate to be on your desk.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: It's not appropriate? You've been sleeping with a sitting judge for the past 6 months, and you got to tell me what is and isn't appropriate?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: I don't conduct official business and the judge's courtroom.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: As far as I'm concerned, your dalliance with Carolyn Walker completely compromises the effectiveness of every prosecutor in this office.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: First of all, it's not a dalliance. Second of all, I have yet to hear Judge Walker accused of abusing the power for office for something vindictive private purpose of her own.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: Is that what you're suggesting I'm doing?
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: That's right.
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: [Belinda gets up] Well, Tommy, I'll tell you what. If you're so sure that neither Becker nor anyone in his office, is guilty of obstruction of justice. I suggest you make that opinion known. If you think I'm acting silly out of spite, I think you should bring me up on charges. Let me also say, should your former law partner become cognizant of the fact that is under investigation? I will assume presumptively that he found out about it from you.
A.D.A. Tommy Mullaney: What are you making threats, Belinda?
A.D.A. Belinda Fox: I'm making assurances. You tell Arnold Becker that he's being investigated. And I'll see to it that you're fired.
[Belinda Fox exits the District Attorney's office]


"L.A. Law: Since I Fell for You (#5.22)" (1991)
Judge Richard Lobel: I don't mind telling you, Ms. Clemmons, I've got serious doubts here about your ability to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. There's nothing tying the gun to the defendant, there's nothing to support the alleged conspiracy between the boy and his mother. I don't much like wasting taxpayers money on foregone conclusions, but I cannot deny that probable cause at least does exist. I have no choice therefore but to order the defendant bound over for trial.
Ann Kelsey: Your Honor, request to be heard in chambers.
Judge Richard Lobel: What's going?
Tommy Mullaney: Oh, God, Ann?
Ann Kelsey: I need to be heard in chambers now.
Tommy Mullaney: Ann.
Ann Kelsey: Please, Your Honor.

Judge Richard Lobel: What's this about?
Ann Kelsey: Cory Walker shot Suzanne.
Tommy Mullaney: Ann.
Ann Kelsey: Not in self defense. It was premeditated murder.
Tommy Mullaney: Ann, stop this.
Ann Kelsey: He also shot his father.
Tommy Mullaney: Ann!
Jeanette Walker: For God's sake, how can you...
[continues arguing]
Judge Richard Lobel: Hold it.
Ann Kelsey: I went there that night, the boy told me what happened.
Jeanette Walker: This is attorney-client privilege. You can't...
Judge Richard Lobel: Quiet, please. The boy told you after you agreed to be their lawyer?
Ann Kelsey: Yes.
Tommy Mullaney: Boy.
Ann Kelsey: I don't care anymore, you hear me? I don't care about privilege. You're about to go on trial for something you didn't do. A 13-year old boy killed two people. He should be getting psychiatric help and he's not.
Judge Richard Lobel: Counsel.
Ann Kelsey: No, Your Honor, I've stop playing by the rules. If the rules can result in this, I want out. Disbarred me, do whatever you have to do. I'm not staying quiet any longer.
Tommy Mullaney: Your Honor, if I can...
Judge Richard Lobel: I am taking over now, Mr. Mullaney, let me do the talking. In the interests of justice, I'm dismissing the claim against Jeanette Walker. Ms. Clemmons, you can bring the boy up in charges if you want. But I'm telling you right now Ms. Kelsey's inside information is totally excluded by attorney-client privilege, given that you have no real evidence, I strongly suggest that you work something out. Now, Ms. Kelsey, I'm reporting your actions to the State Bar as of now you're their problem, not mine. You'll be there 11:00 tomorrow morning.


"L.A. Law: Guess Who's Coming to Murder (#6.9)" (1992)
[Later in the evening at home. Zoey is sleeping. But someone is behind the shadow. Zoey gasped and turned. The man having long hair]
A.D.A. Zoey Clemmons: Who are you?
John Harvey: Who else could it be, dear? No deadbolt, it's a shame.
[the man having a wig turned on the lamp and see who he is]
John Harvey: You treat me with such vindictiveness in court, and you think I can just accepted? Oh, no, I feel compelled to discuss your behavior further.
[the man takes off the wig is the serial killer John Harvey, holding the knife is to threatening Zoey]
John Harvey: I'm shocked you didn't expect me.
[Tommy enters from the nearby bathroom pointing a gun]
Tommy Mullaney: I expected you.
John Harvey: [Harvey stopped] Oh, dear.
Tommy Mullaney: You know you really had me going, John, I didn't know if Kelly Sossa was gonna show. Only thing I was positive about was that someone was going to show up tonight.
John Harvey: Ah, which your timing is such a pity.
[Harvey put the knife down]
John Harvey: As it stands, I can only be arrested for breaking and entering. Had you stayed in the bathroom for just a bit longer, I might have said somethings to Ms. Clemmons, you could've really used against me. What a shame. I really was feeling chatty. This way I'll be in and out of jail in a jiff. What a disappointing end to such a good story. Dear, dear.
[Harvey gasp]
John Harvey: Maybe when I get out, I'll come back again.
Tommy Mullaney: No, you ain't coming back.
[Tommy got a gun to take the serial killer John Harvey down]
Tommy Mullaney: See I had to kill you in self defense.
[Gun cocks]
Tommy Mullaney: Too bad really.
John Harvey: This, uh...
[Getting nervous]
John Harvey: that's cold-blooded murder. She's a District Attorney. She'll prosecute you for this.
Tommy Mullaney: I'm saving her life, and something tells me she'll save mine. Bye-bye John.
John Harvey: I get it. You want me to do something threatening. Something to justify self defense. You wouldn't dare shoot if I stayed passive.
[John Harvey is walking away]
Tommy Mullaney: Wrong.
[But John got the gun to threatened to Tommy, but Tommy shoots Harvey twice as he falls dead]
Tommy Mullaney: Watch your better ethic now.
[Tommy finds out that Zoey is okay now, and he holds and comfort her safely]

[C.J. intervenes in a near-fistfight between Rollins and Mullaney]
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Will you two knock it off! Jonathan, please leave.
[Rollins exits]
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: [to Mullaney] And you!
Tommy Mullaney: What? He barges in here telling me how to try a case!
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Well why did you take the case in the first place for God's sake?
Tommy Mullaney: Because the money's good, there's good publicity and I get my name in the news. Why do you thing I took the case?
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Tommy, the prosecuter is your ex-wife. You took the case to beat up on her, lose to her, anything so you can be the same room with her. You want to do any to make sure that Zoey remains part of your life.
Tommy Mullaney: [feigning ignorance] What? You have no idea what your're talking about. This has nothing to do with Zoey, or my past with her.
Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: [sarcastic tone] Yeah, right. I couldn't be further from the truth, could I?

Cara Jean 'C.J.' Lamb: Uh-huh.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Since there's nothing we can do, I suggest we move on. I'd like to introduce our new associate, Bill Castroverde. Some of you are familiar with his talents as a litigator.

Douglas Brackman, Jr.: He's mentally retarded.
Arnie Becker: I pledge this firm support, he gets it, Douglas.

Ann Kelsey: I've got a client who came out of surgery paralyzed for life. And the scrub nurse who says it's something weird happened to the universe's top orthopedic surgeon in the operating room that day, I'm gonna find out what.
