Storyline

Everyone at the firm is ecstatic when they win a $25 million judgment in a case where they had only been requesting a $17 million settlement. Their jubilation comes to a sudden end when lawyers Patti Nyholm and Louis Canning advise them that they are being sued for $50 million. The basis of their suit is that the judge is a friend of Will Gardner and that the huge settlement was payback for past corrupt activities. They depose anyone affiliated with the case leaving Carey Agos, who has just returned to the firm, as the only lawyer to represent them. Meanwhile, Alicia comes across a large uncashed check in Kalinda's personal file. She calls the number on the check but the man at the other end refuses to identify himself. She tells Kalinda what's happened and she finally tells Alicia what she's been hiding. She also prepares to go to war. Written by garykmcd
