Storyline

Judge Nash is highly regarded for his position and decisions in the courtroom. He's approached by a special agent from a government task force investigating corrupt judges and lawyers, and asked to participate in a sting operation. Initially it's against some people Nash has no trouble believing are corrupt, but as the scope of the sting widens to include some of his friends, he tries to get out. That's when the agent threatens to reveal information that would embarrass Judge Nash if he doesn't continue. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Thoughtful expose of judicial corruption with fine performances

This is a rarity -a tv movie that's both original and finely wrought. Selleck is excellent as an honest judge who is commandeered by the feds to expose potentially corrupt fellow judges. When he's in too deep he realizes his ideals have been naive and that human nature/weakness has touched his closest friends and even his own family. This is a thoughtful, well-balanced film that is exceptionally "fair" in looking at both sides of judicial corruption. In a fine supporting performance Marsha Mason as fellow judge, Ruth, lets us into the loneliness and emptiness of a life where right and wrong are very grey areas indeed. As always she makes us care very much about the person she is playing and when tragedy strikes we are bereft. Very worth seeking out.
