District Attorney Spiegelman singles Bobby out to do pre-trial work for a highly publicized case involving a white cop who shot a black man in the back while arresting him. Bobby is given an assistant with a chip on his shoulder, Milton Hong, who thinks the case should have been his. Bobby re-interviews Hong's witnesses and by gaining their trust, gleans more information from them. Despite all of the evidence he uncovers, it will be another gunshot that brings Bobby to the truth. Meanwhile, Judge Rifkind and his wife, Sarah, go to an alumni weekend in the country. Rifkind is offered a teaching position at the law school.
