Storyline

The trial of Hollywood director Eddie Newman begins amid a media circus and aggressive defense lawyers. It all becomes too personal when Jamie Ross' ex-husband Neil Gorton, one of Newman's lawyers, applies for sole custody of their daughter. When McCoy questions Jamie's work ethic and priorities, she quits. Ray Curtis turns down Lisa Lundquist's offer of a job and a relationship but she offers to testify on the animosity Newman had towards his ex-wife. The case isn't going well for the prosecution, particularly when the defense comes up with what seems to be an alternative suspect. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The total elapsed time from the discovery of the victim to the end of trial is less than six weeks. This includes the detectives traveling to California twice, the DAs once and the trial and verdict. At the VERY least, the events would have taken more than a calendar year, especially given Eddie Newman's (the defendant) wealth and expensive team of attorneys. See more »
