Judge Linda Karlin is a hard line judge and well-known for handing out the maximum sentence for even the most minor crimes. Detectives Lenny Briscoe and Ed Green find themselves investigating an attempt on her life when Frank Morris, who stole a gun from his bartender uncle, takes a shot at her and is gunned down by her police detective bodyguard. The police find that Morris visited Randall Wylie, who has a case before Judge Collins, in jail not long before the shooting. Judge Karlin rejected a plea bargain the DA and Wylie had agreed to and it looks like he may have hired Morris to make the hit. Written by

I'd like to think I can do this job without becoming a cynic.
I'm not a cynic. I get up every morning hoping to find an honest man.
