In this legal drama, Liz Finnegan, a women's rights lawyer who defends abortion clinics and abused women, publicly denounces Judge Vandergraaf for giving a slap-on-the-wrist sentence to a white-collar rapist. The tension between these two legal powerhouses increases when a woman studying law comes forward with an accusation that she was raped by the judge many years ago but never reported it. Blocked in her efforts to open up the case, Finnegan holds an impromptu press conference during which she lays out the accusations and dares the judge to sue for slander in order to bring the case before a jury.
