Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the beating of a retired divorce lawyer Kenneth Slattery who is found at home in his study having been struck on the head. Slattery was retired but was still doing mediation work pro bono so the police begin investigating some of the clients who came to his home office. Slattery had recently pulled an old file from his storage facility in a 15 year-old divorce case. It leads them to a case of a medical partnership that may have been involved in deficient medical practices that led to the death of a 35 year-old woman, Maureen Gerard. It turns out two of the doctors used a new piece of equipment that had not yet been approved by the hospital and allowed a pharmaceutical sales rep to operate the equipment rather that a qualified nurse. ADA McCoy wants to offer the doctors plea bargain but Abby Carmichael wants to take the case to trial. Written by
