The team is investigating the death of baby which was adopted by a couple with children already. Autopsy reveals that the baby was poisoned. They learn that the mother was not interested in adopting. So they arrest her. At her arraignment the judge appears to be ruling in her favor which Casey finds odd. He later cites Elliot for contempt. They learn that he favors certain people and is hard on others. They learn that in another case he wouldn't allow evidence that would have exonerated a woman who was also charged with poisoning her child. So Casey decides to look into and also tries to have the judge removed. Written by

Judicial immunity doesn't work like that. It protects judges from civil suits, particularly for slander, brought about through the course of their duties, but judges can face criminal charges just like anyone can. If the case against Taft was legally sufficient, there's no way the arraignment judge should have just thrown it out. See more
