Episode Summary

EDIT
The Price Of Liberty
AIRED:
6th Amendment right to witness confrontation. A masked witness confronts a drug dealer the government is trying to convict. The prosecution refuses to reveal the name of the witness, for fear that the defendant will find a way to harm the witness. Three other named witnesses against the defendant have previously been killed, though there is no evidence the defendant killed them or arranged for them to be killed. The defence appeals to the Supreme Court. The Court rules that under the 6th Amendment, the witness must reveal her identity, or she may not testify. A lawyer accuses his firm of discrimination. He is a dwarf, and under the colour of accommodation, his firm installed a "mini office" for him, which he said lead to him being treated differently, like a sideshow. The firm argued that under the Americans With Disabilities Act, they were simply accommodating his disability. The lawyer argued that he is not disabled. The Supreme Court rules against the lawyer, saying that the firm made a good faith effort at accommodation.moreless
