Storyline

Alicia and Cary represent represent Neil Gross who wants to fight a gag order he's received from the NSA stopping him from explaining to his Chum Hum clients what information he was forced to provide the government. What no one knows is that the NSA is snooping on Diane and Alicia' calls because they once defended Danny Marwatt, an Arab-American translator who was accused of collaborating with the Taliban. Meanwhile, Diane's nomination for the State Supreme Court is in jeopardy as the Chief Justice is insisting she publicly distance herself from Will Gardner's past activities. Alicia and Cary face yet another hurdle in acquiring office space for their new firm. Help comes from a surprising source. Written by garykmcd

Bit Bucket-Kick this Bucket ***
7 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The firm plans to sue the NSA unaware that they have been taping them.

It's always politics as Gov.-elect Florrick wants Diane as a state supreme court justice, but others want her to condemn Will first.

Alicia's mother writes out a check for $140,000 to pay for the setting up of the firm.

Going into that separate court room on the basis of national interests was somewhat off base. Alicia and the team needed clearance. How come they were able to bring a case up to begin with?

Matt Czuchry needs to get that constant grin off his face. He is a good actor.

What's with Zack's girlfriend trying to sell that object for $890.00?
