** the most egregious example is "By Perjury". Bascially, the detectives and prosecutors suspect that an AmoralAttorney killed a judge in a case he was involved in two years before. the thing is, one of the attorney's clients was convicted and subsequently executed for the crime ''six months ago''. The murder case should have still been on appeal.

Added DiffLines:

** Nearly every show in this franchise has shown the cops barging into a doctor's office/exam room/ operating room to arrest the doctor in question or their patient. This is grossly inappropriate behavior that would never happen in RealLife (possibly even lampshaded by the fact that there's always someone present yelling, "You can't go in there!"). These actions would not only violate patient privacy (very often, they are present when the cops walk in), they would compromise the sterility of the OR and cause a huge swath of problems for the hospital/clinic staff.

** Jesse L. Martin had to leave Season 15 near the end to work on filming the movie {{Rent}}, so he was replaced by Nick Falco (Michael Imperioli) for the last four episodes of Season 15. He returned in Season 16.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: For instance, in "Prisoner of Love": Greevey wants to be taken off the case because he's a Catholic, and he feels sickened because the victim was a BDSM sex worker. Later, when interviewing the daughter of the victim, who died from hanging, she says that her father never would have committed suicide. When asked why, she says that it's because he's a Catholic.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspectExistenceFailure: When a doctor who's supposed to be giving vital testimony in his daughter's case (she's up for murder, her defense is that it was assisted suicide) kills ''himself'' on the stand (via poison he administered several hours beforehand.) This, obviously, calls for a mistrial and [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled gets him out of facing consequences]] even though he'd practically admitted that there were less-than-merciful motives for the "assisted suicide" all along.
