Voting for Freedom

Trampas is nodding along on his horse when he is rudely awoken by rifle fire. Marshall Krug and his deputy arrest Trampas and take him to town to face court for murder of a man whom he had been seen with earlier.

As Trampas has no representation the court appoints a local lawyer who is unable to take the case so he handballs it on to a female partner.

This new development bemuses Trampas and he puts his foot in it by stating he does not support voting for women! However the change in lawyers is the best thing that could happen for Trampas as she is a stickler for procedure and this saves Trampas from the usual rush to the noose the town is used to.
