*** "Cor-Ai" has Teal'c being put on trial for a murder he committed before his HeelFaceTurn, and Jack (primarily, but the others do help) has to defend him.
*** "Pretense" consists of a trial to determine whether Skaara or the Goa'uld [[PuppeteerParasite inhabiting his body]] has a right to it. Daniel and Jack share lawyering duty.

him. The twist is that, according to the rules of the Cor-Ai, the accuser is also the judge. Jack finds the idea ridiculous, although Daniel finds historical precedent and points out that, in a certain way, it makes sense. [[spoiler:While the son of the victim ends up finding Teal'c guilty and sentences him to die at midday, a Goa'uld attack and Teal'c heroism in defending the villagers convinces the guy that Teal'c is a different person now, and that [[ThatManIsDead the man, who murdered his father is dead]]]].
*** "Pretense" consists of a trial (well, a "triad") to determine whether Skaara or the Goa'uld [[PuppeteerParasite inhabiting his body]] has a right to it. Daniel and Jack share lawyering duty. This is the first an only time we see a Goa'uld acting as a defense attorney... and doing a decent job of it, despite his Polynesian outfit.



*** Another case ''almost'' happens in "Collateral Damage" when Mitchell is apparently responsible for killing someone, but avoids an actual court case since the charges were quickly glossed over under the pretense of Mitchell having diplomatic immunity. Instead the point of the episode is to prove Mitchell's innocence.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Unikitty}}'' episode "Kitty Court" features Master Frown, injured from being hit by Unikitty's car, taking the princess to court. However, since the accident was in the Unikingdom, it involves the wacky justice system of the kingdom, which treats it like a party, with literal recess on a playground, fruit smoothies, and a roulette wheel to choose the judge (which ends up [[TheDitz Puppycorn]] for that trial). Brock was supposed to be Master Frown's lawyer, but he gave up to play video games, so Unikitty stepped in to defend Master Frown and persecute...herself. It's only when [[spoiler:Master Frown outs himself as having planned to get hit just to make Unikitty miserable that he is declared guilty]].

** This was remade in a skit starring el Dr. Chapatín, the main changes were that it happened in an actual courtroom, he ran over a lady's dog with his car, and instead of [[spoiler:[[DistractedByTheSexy the judge looking at a pretty woman,]] he was jay walking while drunk.]]
