  • Jimmy concludes the "case I've waiting my entire life for"

    8.0
    The cancer cluster case against Boston Electric concludes in this episode. As Jimmy said in the previous episode “I’ve been waiting my entire life for this case.” Bobby is very concerned about Jimmy’s ability to try this case and even suggests that Lindsay take over as first chair. Jimmy is aware of this and it is obvious that it hurts him deeply. Jimmy is finally given a offer of a 1 million dollars that he turns down and that makes Bobby furious. Bobby even accuses Jimmy of malpractice. The show presents how much pressure Jimmy is under and how few facts that he has to bolster his case. But it also show that Jimmy can act a little goofy sometime that he a man with great moral strength. While the jury is deliberating Jimmy is offered 4 million to settle and he turns that down. Bobby is beside himself. The t dramatic verdict is read and Jimmy wins 35 million dollars, but then the judge over rules the verdict and sets it aside. The show ends with Jimmy sobbing in Lindsay’s arms…a very touching Jimmy story line.moreless
