Arnold's Bar and Grill, where the party takes place, has been used in many episodes of the program. It is Cincinnati's oldest saloon and, as the sign says, has been in continuous operation since 1861. It is located at 210 East 8th Street, roughly one-half mile from the Convention Center.
The actual filming took place on a Warner Brothers sound stage modeled after the venerable tavern. In June 2012, Arnold's received four large boxes of props from the set, highlighted by the stained-glass window used on NBC. They plan to display the items in an upstairs dining room which be called the Harry's Law room.
Ohio effectively abolished the felony murder rule through the enactment of its involuntary manslaughter statute.
Early on in the episode, the three lawyers - Harry, Adam, and Phoebe - are speaking to each other in the gymnasium in normal voices while the marching band is playing. No one could possibly hear each other while a 39-piece brass band is playing and marching in a gym with a wooden floor and walls, even if they were screaming at the top of their lungs!
Cassie reveals that her best friend was killed in a school shooting when she was 16. She also says that it happened 12 years ago, which would make her 28. Karen Olivo, who plays Cassie, is 35.

The front of courthouse shown in the episode is the Potter Stewart United States Courthouse.

Adam tells us Cassie's nickname is "The Smart Bomber" because of her excellent cross-examination skills when she worked at the D.A.'s office.
