Detectives Lennie Briscoe and Ed Green investigate the shooting of a television journalist, Frank Elliott, who was attacked outside a New York restaurant. They quickly determine that Elliott was shot by an army-issued weapon and they quickly identify a suspect. Elliott is an arrogant blow-hard who had only just returned from an assignment in Iraq where he was embedded with an army unit. Some men in the unit feel he gave away their position leading to the death of several men. Jack McCoy is determined not to let the publicity-seeking Elliott report on the trial but before he can go to trial himself, Elliott is arrested for treason. Written by
