Trivia

In keeping with the Law & Order (1990) system of having actors appear prior to becoming regular characters, Courtney B. Vance plays an uncredited assistant to the Mayor. He would return 5 years later in 1995 as another character in Law & Order: Rage (1995) and then 11 years later as prosecutor Ron Carver in Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001).

To this day, Michael Moriarty (Ben Stone) and Richard Brooks (Paul Robinette) remain in the show's opening credits. They can be seen at the top of the stairs in the shot of the courthouse against the "ORDER" title. This shot is taken from the end of the first season episode "By Hooker, By Crook" and has been in the show's opening credits since the pilot episode (although was shortened by about half a second in 1994). Furthermore, George Dzundza (Max Greevey) remained in the opening credits until the end of 1993, despite leaving after the first season. In their original version, which ran from 1990-1993, the show's opening credits were twice as long as they are today and featured a shot of the two detectives' unmarked patrol car speeding towards the camera (after the trademark "big four" shot of the two detectives and prosecutors walking together). Dzundza is sitting in the passenger seat. This shot is also interesting in that the detective's car, a 1988 Dodge Diplomat, was only used in seasons one and two of the show and was switched to a 1992 Ford Crown Victoria in season three, yet the shot of both the departed Dzundza and Diplomat remained.
