When the mayor's lead in the upcoming primary begins to wane, the press sites Judge Rifkind's ordeal as one of the Mayor's problems. The mayor puts in motion a plan to have Rifkind removed from the bench. In the ADA's office, maintenance removes Bobby's computer so it can be evaluated for misconduct and Cynthia is called into District Attorney Spiegelman's office. Spiegelman wants her to testify against Judge Rifkind for sexual harassment. He claims someone witnessed a harassing remark Rifkind made to her. She denies anything ever happened but is forced to reconsider when threatened that her testimony will keep Bobby out of jail. Meanwhile, Judge Sims has her own plan for helping Rifkind.
