Did You Know?


The defense team is very concerned that a juror is funneling information about how the jury is leaning to an outside source but not at all concerned that the jury is discussing the case before it is sent to it for deliberation, a serious breach of trial rules. See more »

Sexed to death
4 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In this Franklin&Bash story the guys have to defend the voluptuous and beautiful Natalie Zea on a charge of murder. The prosecution has a highly interesting theory of the crime. That by forcing sex on her elderly millionaire husband she caused his death. I think we all know that this episode was inspired by the late Anna Nicole Smith.

Zea says she left the husband in good health when she went out one night and found him dead o returning home. A highly interesting theory and one wonders if he went out with a smile.

There's also some leaks coming from the jury and the guys bait an interesting trap for the leaker.

Best scene is Breckin Meyer making a big old faux pas with a judge. Just outstanding.
