Storyline

The firm represents an oil drilling company that has not been paid the $86 million it is owed by an oil company for the work they performed. They are in the processing of deposing the owner of that company when they are told the that the President of Venezuela has nationalized that company's interests and they are now the plaintiffs in the case. The election is only a day away and the candidates are close to being even in the pools. Wendy Scott-Carr's husband has given a very sympathetic TV interview and Eli Gold is forced to ask Alicia to do the same even though he had promised her at the outset that he would never do so. Alicia is also being asked for information by the investigator looking into Blake Calamar's statements to an ASA. He thinks he has good news for Alicia. The news however is devastating.
