Everything brilliant and compassionate defense attorney Paul Madriani stands for is put to the test when he's hired to defend an indefensible adversary. Baltimore's Judge Armando Acosti's harsh and inflexible rulings are notorious. His unjust sentence of attorney Paul Madriani's latest client, an abused wife charged with the murder of her husband, is proof. But Madriani soon finds himself in a curious position of power over the judge. Acosti is arrested for soliciting a prostitute-undercover vice cop, Brittany Hill, who's called in as key witness for the prosecution. Acosti denies the charges, but when Hill is murdered-and all evidence points to the judge - Acosti finds himself in desperate need of a savvy defense. The irony isn't lost on Madriani.

When the question of who is going to preside over the trial of the Baltimore-based judge comes up, it is stated that no other judge in the county is willing to handle it.

When I saw this movie on NBC a few months ago I though with its great cast including Chris Noth, Edward James Olmos, and Lolita Davidovich it would be a decent made - for - tv movie. It wasn't. Noth was phoning it in, Olmos was far to sullen and Davidovich was under used. The story had a disjointed feel and it started to drag in the first hour of the 4hour story. Not worth the effort of watching.
