Storyline

Employees are on edge as Will Gardner and Diane Lockhart begin to cut positions and reduce costs. Alicia is expecting the worst when Will calls her into to his office but he in fact wants her to be the second chair in a lawsuit against Anna Loeb, the estranged daughter of the firm's absentee partner Jonas Stern. The woman is represented by storefront lawyer Ryan Alprin in a case where a pedestrian tripped over a cable and fell in front of Loeb's house and is now suing for her and her husband for $1.2 million, accusing them of negligence. Their lawyer decides on a unique argument: as Orthodox Jews, the Loebs couldn't repair the cable, which became detached on the Sabbath, as they are prohibited from working on that day. That defense soon runs into a problem and it's left to Alicia and investigator Kalinda to get to the root of the accusations. It all may fall apart however when Alicia learns something shocking about Alprin himself. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The suing lady was supposedly on her way to a Kosher store for gluten-free products when she tripped. However, it was the Sabbath, so the store (being both Kosher and in a Hassidic neighborhood) would have been closed. See more »

Unorthodox: Plenty Here isn't Kosher ***1/2
11 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a really good episode but some might complain, and justifiably so, that there was entirely too much going on here.

A party girl totally reforms and weds an orthodox man. They are later sued because they did nothing when a woman fell in the street due to an exposed wire by their home. The accident occurred on the sabbath. Later, it's determined that the "observant" woman has made phone calls on Friday night. If that isn't enough, the alarm inspector is in cahoots with the person suing and the lawyer defending the orthodox couple isn't a lawyer! This becomes a little too much to fathom. Nonetheless, it is handled well and the storyline is interesting.

By the way, it's layoff time at the firm and Christine Baranski, with that cold veneer, has no feelings who is getting hurt.
