The trial begins, but the shooting death of a deputy sheriff calls Brenda and her team away. According to the deputy's partner, Mike Burton, they were following an expensive sports car that had been reported stolen, which was all part of a joint program with the FBI to round up a ring of international car thieves. Burton states there were two suspects in the vehicle but forensics finds prints connecting to four known criminals (one captured). By the time they track a second man down, he's dead. They set a trap, hoping to nab the ringleader. Meanwhile, Brenda's lawyer, Gavin Baker, hopes to get the Baylor lawsuit against Brenda thrown out of court. He succeeds but prosecuting attorney Peter Goldman has an ace up his sleeve, and Brenda may have more than one of her cases brought up in another court.

You know, the justice system works pretty well, until someone starts thinkin' that they're smarter than the Sheriff's office, the FBI and the entire LAPD combined. Do you see what happens when you throw away the rule book, Deputy? People die.
