    • Jack McCoy: 'I was just following orders.' Where have I heard that before?

      'I was just following orders' is also referred to as the Nuremburg defense. After the Second World War, many Nazis being tried for crimes related to the Holocaust defended themselves by saying that they were only following orders or that they didn't know the extent of the atrocities. This was usually an unsuccessful defense.
