A woman's body snagged by a fisherman on the Hudson River bank is the case that Briscoe and Green catch in this Law And Order story. She's been there a while, but she's finally identified as a missing court house employee going through a messy divorce with Sean Cullen.
Which of course makes him look good for it especially in the eyes of that noted divorce expert Jerry Orbach. But again it's Elizabeth Rohm who spots certain inconsistencies that send the DA looking in other directions.
What we have here is a divorce racket in the divorce part of the Supreme Court in New York County. Judge Jan Maxwell consistently favors a certain group of lawyers in her court. The beauty of this is that divorce cases are automatically sealed except for the parties and attorneys involved. And the decisions are for the most part subjective with alimony, community property, and custodial rights left completely at the judge's discretion. If it weren't for the fact that the deceased was a court employee you couldn't possibly catch on.
Maybe Lennie Briscoe has a reason to be so cynical about matrimony and divorce.
