Storyline

Friendly gay judge Stanton, who once let Nick off with community service, is promoted to federal judge, but a cardiac attack soon kills him. Nick minds Stanton's dog, Burton remembers his advice there's more to a lawyer's life then lucrative clients, considering to opt for the bench. Alvin defends adolescent Ted Popper, whose delusions since parental abuse make him unsuited for youth shelters, due to violent episodes. Fondly remembering his political campaigning past, Alvin starts a movement for suitable psychiatric care. Nick takes the case of Janine McGregor, who needs to cash her missing daughter Grace's trust fund by having her declared legally dead to keep her other child home, but thus finds a girl who claims to be the Grace.
