  • this episode revolves around two stories.

    the first being an abandoned baby at the office christmas party,and the second is a person being charged for the murder of a cabby who proclaims his innocence.In the case of the abandoned baby, the issue deals with the baby being taken by an employee of the law firm,who feels the baby is being neglected by the mother of the child ,her next door neighbor.We learn that the mother is overwhelmed by being a single parent after a recent divorce. The firm offers to get her help and it's case closed. The second case of the cabby's homicide is more difficult to deal with. The prosecution has an eye witness to the crime,who suddenly wants to testify and see justice done.The defence cannot understand why this witness suddenly appears and wants to testify after a long period of time has gone by.It turns out that the witness is really a federally protected informant who will be testifying in other cases for the FBI. The FBI wants to see how he does on the stand and the informant really did witnees the alledged crime.The defense finds out about the witness's background, but before they can get the information in open court the D.A. withdraws the charges to protect the informant's identity for the upcoming trials and the defendant goes free.Later we see what really transpired was a tragic accident. The cabby and the defendant were arguing about the fare,when the cabby pulls out a gun. The fare flees and the cabby throws the gun out the door. The cocked gun hits the ground and goes off,fatally hitting the cabby in the head.
  • When a college student is suspected of murdering a cab driver, it is up to Ron to clear his name. Even if it means breaking the law.

    This was an awesome episode! Just period. It had everything anyone would ever want in an episode. It had the drama and everything. The baby sidestory was also good character development. We learn more about Trott (who had a marriage to Judge Madison) and more about how the lawyers win their cases. It was so interesting to see the witness and Ron's impression of him. What I really like about this series is that at the very end, you see what really happened, and seeing what actually happened in that alley both surprised and intrigued me. Overall, this is must-see!
  • This was a great example of courtroom antics, and Ron was at his best.

    There was an interesting case in the court as they tried to make a case in one day. I would be curious just how many cases are rushed through the door like that because no one wants to be in a jury room over the holidays. I know that I would not want to be there myself but would it not be a great grounds for appeal? Then there was Mr. Trott who went from smart aleck to caring in one sentence. I have often thought that he was not as much a jerk as he lets on, that it really is all an act with him; and perhaps the ex mrs Trott saw that too when he told that crack mother that he knew how much it would take to care for a baby which is why he could never do it. Ron does have a concious he just would prefer that no one else knew about it.
  • Reruns?! where are the reruns?!

    This was a great episode. I've missed the last few episodes (forgot the moved to Fridays from Mondays. Oops). Well, anyways, this was the perfect episode to come back too. It was funny, cool, and exactly why I watch this series. I think the ending may have been a little too out there, but besides that it was great! my only real problem: I had NO idea what they were talking about the whole episode! I need to see a rerun of this as soon as possible. Maybe I'll get it the second time. or third. Fourth at the most :P. But still, over all it was totally worth watching.
