Storyline

Hart asks Kingsfield to answer a question before he thoroughly researched the case himself. As a penalty, Kingsfield gives Hart additional research that is due the following morning. Hart is lost in thought while bicycling across campus, and is struck by a car driven by Leanne Laski, the president of the Law Review. Meanwhile, Bell misplaces his Property outline (actually stolen by Ford, as a prank). Elsewhere, Logan is arrested when her off-hand legal advice to some high school girls results in a riot at the girls' private school. Written by JEFJR

A rotten day for almost everyone....
29 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Three members of the study group have a rough day. First, when the always over-eager Hart asks Professor Kingsfield about a case after class ends, Kingsfield assigns him a HUGE analysis of the case--and it's due in the morning! Considering Hart is practically insane trying to get his work done, he's now frantic--so frantic he rides his bike directly into the path of an oncoming car! Second, when Logan makes a relatively innocent comment to some high school girls, it turns into a riot and she is arrested! Third, despite Bell having produced a wonderful outline for the study group, he becomes frantic when he loses it. This leaves Anderson to be a grumpus during the episode--and he constantly complains to Ford since the group is not functioning.

Not a bad episode at all. However, because the plot is a bit diffuse, it is also not one of the more memorable ones. Not bad however.
