A Big Pay Day Tied Up
2 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

By Perjury refers to one of the ways that attorney Dallas Roberts uses to prevent anyone from standing in his way from collecting a really big pay day in a class action lawsuit involving an airline crash. Roberts comes to the attention of detectives Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson when one of the participants in the class action lawsuit is killed. Afterward some more murders directly and indirectly are connected to Roberts and all were involved with being roadblocks preventing from collecting on that big rainmaker case he's been working on.

Just his whole manner makes Roberts the kind you make lawyer jokes about, but this guy is deadly serious and I do mean deadly. He wriggles out of one murder because Jeremy Sisto cut a couple of corners in obtaining evidence. But it's Linus Roache who really gets his back up and its Roache who Roberts contemptuously calls an 'earnest civil servant' who makes it a crusade to creatively bring him down.

Ned Eisenberg who is a semi-regular defense attorney appears here as Roberts's lawyer when he decides that maybe he is a fool for defending himself and Mercedes Ruehl has a nice turn as a judge with a rather strange southern accent for a New York City courtroom. Still this episode belongs to Dallas Roberts.
