Justice takes a back seat

7/10
Author: lastliberal from United States
12 September 2008

The man From U.N.C.L.E., Oscar-nominated Robert Vaughn (The Young Philadelphians) appears in this episode as a man with a big grudge against Adam Schiff (Steven Hill), who is fighting for his political life.

His Executive A.D.A (Sam Waterston) is facing ethics charges, and Jaime Ross (Carey Lowell) is testifying as she leaves the department. What will she say? Lt. Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) gets the news in no uncertain terms that the brass wants her resignation for filing a lawsuit, and Lenny (Jerry Orbach) is debating on whether or not to make a deal with a con to kill the man who killed his daughter.

Among all this, there is a 10-year-old girl that is barely alive after being raped and everyone wants this case closed pronto.

Lenny and wife bury daughter Katherine, McCoy goes to disciplinary committee

10/10
Author: jim stephens from United States
29 September 2007

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This episode contains the McCoy character's trip to the Disciplinary committee at which Jamie may have testified against him. In a later episode, Jamie is referred for violating privilege and McCoy shows up to support her on her visit.

Near the end, is the funeral of Lennie's daughter.

Lennie's daughter had a long history of problems with drugs and is murdered for her part in a deal gone bad in which she participated to earn better treatment for her own problems.

The service is Jewish, though I believe in another episode it comes out that Lennie was raised Catholic. I'll leave it for someone with knowledge of such issues and of this character to add to that, as I don't wish to mess up my description of what is going on.

Resignation

4/10
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
8 May 2012

Cliff Gorman made his third and final appearance as a sleazy judge who is challenging Steven Hill for District Attorney. Gorman's candidacy was birthed by Robert Vaughn an old friend of Hill's whose office prosecuted his grandson for a murder. He wanted the kid to get a walk and Hill would not oblige for friendship's sake.

This episode has a very serious flaw in it. Gorman is a sitting judge and if he were running for District Attorney he would have had to resign. In the three episodes with Gorman as both judge and candidate his conflict of interest is apparent.

In this one because he's a candidate he's having a field day with the DA's office because they originally were prosecuting the wrong guy. That could never happen in real life. If not resign Gorman would have been handling civil cases at a minimum for the duration of the campaign.

Still Gorman is some piece of work as a power hungry judge on the make. But the premise of the show has a flaw that can't be overlooked.
