Detectives Lenny Briscoe and Ray Curtis think they have a revenge shooting on their hands when a small-time hood by the name of Mike escapes a shooting in a restaurant men's room. Dr. Leon Mayer from Seattle is seriously wounded in the incident and the police soon realize that his shooting was not an accident and that he was the intended victim all along. Mayer, a psychiatrist, was in town to act as an expert witness who was going to testify in a high profile case, something he did on a regular basis. It leads them to Lindsay Carson who blames Meyer for her father Arthur Rigg's conviction. It seems that Meyer refused to help them with her father's appeal and it's left to Jack McCoy to figure out why he refused to do so. Written by
