Viola: "But you also bear Gross a grudge, in that you sued him for nonpayment..."
Kassim: "No, we disagreed about Euro-to-dollar conversions and I didn't get paid..."
Viola: "Because Gross's company refuse to pay you precisely because you were selling spy software to Middle Eastern regimes, right?"
Kassim: "No..."(Viola gets some exciting news.)
Viola: "...No further questions. Also, we want to bring Groff back."
Viola gets Jimmy to say, on the record, that he's suing because his sister is dead -- and in fact that's what the class is all about -- but then she produces pictures of Sara from three days ago. She's not dead! So therefore, the class action is moot? I guess so. I mean, I guess it calls into question both things she said the case was about, but there's still two dead kids and the fact that she's been a prisoner and beaten for who knows how long, right? "Because my sister is dead" and "because my sister got the hell kicked out of her and arrested thanks to you" isn't exactly apples and oranges. And of course, it's clearly rocked Groff's socks right off, so that's a major move in itself. Where is this going? And will Abernathy ever stop crying?
The Board: "Mr. Gardner, we're willing to hear calls for leniency, thanks to Batman."
The Board: "We heard your firm is all about stepping up their pro bono efforts at the same time most firms are downsizing that stuff to save money, which impresses us. And apparently, according to Batman, this was all your idea?"
The Board: "Because we are willing to end this right now with a six month suspension."
Will: "I'm not sure about..."
The Board: "No cases, no clients, no entering a courtroom except as a private citizen. Should you decline, we'll proceed to a disbarment hearing, which is irrevocable."
Will: "Uh, I will just shut up, okay?"
The Board: "Let us know tomorrow."
Groff wants to drop the suit, not because Sara's alive necessarily but because he doesn't want her endangered further. The other family members in the class try to talk sense to him, but he has flipped over to seeing it as it is, which -- at least for him -- is a play for damages and nothing more. It's a compelling point. Here's a better one: "If we walk away, this company goes about its business, and who's to say there's not another Amy or Sara in the future?"
