Will and Alicia represent Rainey Selwin who is suing her rapist in civil court after the authorities failed to prosecute her attacker. She is particularly upset that he's just going on with his life, which includes going to college in the fall. The judge has issued a strict gag order on the court proceedings but when he learns Rainey tweeted about the case, he puts her in jail. Alicia is soon receiving anonymous information via the Internet and believes that a former client, Dylan Stack - and his friends in Anonymous - is responsible. Meanwhile, Diane's vetting for a possible State Supreme Court begins but a meeting with the Chief Justice presents her with a surprising roadblock. At the office, Alicia learns that Cary and the other fourth year associates are planning to leave and set up their own firm. He asks Alicia to join them. Written by garykmcd

This Episode Warrants ***1/2
15 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a rape victim violates a gag order, she is sent to jail, while the accused is out. Some justice so far.

It remains unclear throughout this episode who the guy is who is sending text messages to Alicia's children regarding the above incident.

The vetting process of Diane continues, and the guy who she is now engaged to be married, appears to be quite a character. I guess that's what vetting is all about.

The judge in the above episode seems to be thoroughly by the book, but isn't that what justice is all about?

Cary Agos proves that he is some stinker, by plotting to leave the firm and take all the 4 year attorneys with him. He even has the timidity to ask Alicia to come with him.
