David and Jack arrive in the room just as Michelle is pleading her case to Katrina. Jack tries to plant seeds of doubt in David's mind, by saying that Michelle knew there was an opening and chose to present her own case instead of notifying David of the opportunity. David confronts Michelle about this in the hallway and asks her to give him the opening. In the background, Katrina compliments Jack on his masterful manipulation that put David and Michelle at odds. Jack stares real hard at Michelle and David and then swallows real hard as well. Jealous? Of your own sister? If Jack has truly laid off the boy toys, as he promised his mother he would, maybe he's just really pent up and needs to... relieve some stress, as it were.
Reverend Samuels's case is called. It turns out he's being sued by his church for allegedly embezzling half a million dollars and then losing it with an unwise investment. Samuels claims that his signature was forged on the documents, but Silas points out that the signature before him matches Samuels's signature. Silas does a little digging and figures out that Samuels signed a document without reading it, thinking he was signing off on moving choir practice to a different night. Silas orders the accountant to stand trial for theft and misrepresentation, since she's the one who stole the money. Okay, if it were that easy to crack the case, how did the initial judge get it wrong? Wouldn't that be a matter of concern? Because Silas figured it out in like ten seconds.
Meanwhile, Michelle's partner (remember? The dude who was hitting on her at the party until Michelle figured out that her mother set the whole thing up?) is pissed that Michelle is thinking about giving up her slot at Judgment Day for David. But it's all a moot point when Katrina announces that they've decided to hear Michelle's case instead of David's. And honestly, from a global perspective, won't Michelle's case help more people than David's? I get that his brother's life is at stake, but won't a better health care system save many people's lives? And why does no one point this out? [To be fair, health care reform is being given the same care and attention here as an embezzlement case and a wandering pig. - Zach] As David, Michelle and Jack walk out, David vows to get his brother to recant. Jack springs the news on him that someone is pushing for the death penalty in Ethan's case. Who? Who is someone? David shakes his head and stomps out.
