MONDO EXTRAS

Court of No Appeal

by Shack May 25, 2002
L.A. Law: The Movie

Cut to Michael's office, where Warren continues to wring his hands while describing to Michael what he saw. Benny stands nearby to reassure him or whatever. Warren saw the man who shot the officer from across the courtyard of the building where it took place, and insists that it wasn't Hutchinson. Michael asks Warren whether he told anybody what he saw. He says he told Belinda, but defends her, claiming that "Dumbledore" forced her to lie. The name Dumbledore confuses Michael. Benny explains that Dumbledore is a character from Harry Potter, which clears up exactly nothing. Eventually, Warren spits out that the guy who forced Belinda to lie has a name that sounds like "Dumbledore." Of course, if this murder happened nearly ten years ago, there's no freaking way he would associate the guy's name with Dumbledore, but whatever. Michael realizes that Warren is talking about Congressman Diebenkorn, who was the D.A. at the time of the murder. Warren says he also told Diebenkorn what he saw.

Commercials. Flash flood warnings. I risked death to watch this movie! Okay, not really, but there was some flooding a few miles away.

We return to see Arnie lying on his couch, looking over catalogues of fancy cars. He's interrupted by his assistant, who informs him that Lara is there. The assistant leaves and shuts the door behind him. Lara explains that she wanted to come without her lawyer in the hopes of clearing the air. Arnie snarks at Lara. She's polite to him. Arnie asks what her proposal is. Lara wants to sell the house and split the money; she also wants one car, and a few art pieces. Arnie can have all the rest. Arnie continues to be a giant prick, suggesting that she sleeps around with men in order to get things from them. Lara sadly responds that she recognized that Arnie was like a little boy when she fell in love with him. She even liked that part of him. But, she says, he's transformed from a little boy into a bitter old man. Lara leaves. Arnie makes a frowny face, and the official sad transition music plays.

Back at the ugly courthouse, Michael has convinced Warren to take the witness stand. Warren tells his story and insists that Albert wasn't the man he saw shoot the officer. He further explains that he told this to Diebenkorn in his office. Grace looks shocked. Michael produces a sign-in sheet from the Hall of Justice that shows Warren listed as a visitor and enters it into evidence. Hall of Justice? Did he visit Wonder Woman while he was there? Michael asks what happened at the meeting. Warren says Diebenkorn told him not to say anything about the case to anybody. Michael has no further questions.
