  • Shirley and Alan take a case involving a GI who died because of negligence in a VA hospital. Denny and Alan make a bet about the case. Jerry helps his sister find out who her sons birth father is as it possibly will have a direct impact on his life.moreless

    Denny has gone around the bend. Telling a court clerk of a sitting judge that you have a bet with a presiding lawyer on the outcome of a case. I am sure we will be seeing some results of that in the next few episodes.

    Shirley approaches Alan about the case because as she puts it she needs the best and he is that. It really was shame that he and Denny disappointed her so much. In a way I think that is the worse thing you can do to someone.

    Jerry's case was a difficult one. The results could really be terrible for the kids in the long run. I have some personal experience with the closed records situation of adopted kids and the medical history problems alone can be enormous. You really feel for those kids and hope for the best.

    I really enjoyed this episode and would highly recommend it. The twists and turns of the relationships alone are worth watching. Thanks for reading...moreless
