Storyline

Racial tensions threaten to explode in city-wide rioting when Rollins represents an innocent black family suing the Los Angeles Police Department for excessive violence when the police destroyed their home after mistaking it for a crack house. Meanwhile, Judge Grace Van Owen ponders the appropriate sentence for an eight-year-old crack delivery boy who murdered a policeman after he tried to take his cocaine package away. Brackman, cured of his impotence, begins dating Marilyn. Also, Rosalind interferes with Victor's case concerning a couple suing a liquor company for negligence because of a conflict of interest.
