Episode Summary

EDIT
Tucker's Courtroom Coup
AIRED:
The firm handles the case of Louis Forrestal, who's being sued for support by a former live-in love, Camille. Though Eliot doesn't want to represent him, he can't say no; Forrestal pays the firm a huge yearly retainer. Mr. Marshall tells Eliot to try for a settlement. Forrestal says he agreed to provide for her when they were in the relationship, not after it. Eliot tries unsuccessfully to talk Forrestal into settling, and panics when he says no. So Tucker, Leslie and Sara have their first day in court, and Mr. Marshall has his first in years when he comes by to give support. Eliot shows Forrestal pictures from a P.I. that show Camille cheating on him over and over. When it looks like he's going to lose, Eliot takes the pictures and tries to smear Camille's name, but the judge puts a stop to it and Tucker convinces Eliot to let him take over. Since Camille is suing over a lost singing career she claims she gave up because of her devotion to Forrestal, Tucker makes her sing in court to prove her worth, expecting to catch her in a lie. But she stands up and belts out an operetta with such an incredible voice that the whole courtroom applauds. Tucker thinks he blew it, yet the judge's verdict surprises everybody -- he thinks Camille's voice is so perfect she doesn't need Forrestal to provide for her, she can provide for herself. Meanwhile, Forrestal and Sara flirt with each other when he takes a liking to her beauty and she to his money.moreless
