Something no parent should face
16 April 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Law And Order episode is the story of the murder of an insurance claims investigator who cast the deciding vote on a panel as to whether Juan Carlos Hernandez's daughter should get an experimental drug for her leukemia. The thing has not cleared the endless bureaucratic hurdles of the FDA. But it might represent the young girl's last and best chance.

No parent should ever be in that position. The victim also had a wife and kids. This is one nasty case that Sam Waterston has handed him.

A lot of very important issues are discussed and weighed here. This story is not to be missed.
