Court Episode

An episode(s) take place in a courtroom.

Name Space:
Page Type:
Often times (much to the characters involved) they happen to get a jury duty letter and are often assigned to be a member of the jury or have to go to court for legal reasons. This is often used as a Filler Episode. Also because of the natures of the shows, TV shows like Judge Joe Brown, Judge Judy, Eye for an Eye are not to be added for obvious reasons

Live-Action TV

  • Series/Monk: Monk and Natalie get jury duty letters but only Natalie is excused and Monk is forced to be in the jury.
  • Series/Charmed: Phoebe is assigned to jury duty when a man supposedly kills a woman Phoebe summons the spirit of the girl and she revaeals it wasn't him. Leo then uses a special type of magic to erase the members of the jury's memories of magic ever existing

    I'd expand the description to any episode involving being in court, jury duty related or otherwise. Seems unnecessarily restrictive by making it jury duty related.

    Um, like how?

    Also, we already have Jury Duty so this definitely needs expanding.

    ^Since we have that already, this would be a supertrope to it since it's broader. In this case the focus could be on anyone in the court, from the defendants, to the lawyers, the judge, or just some guy in the audience.

    Ultimate Assist Me episode 4 focused on Doctor Doom getting a summons to court for a list of crimes. Max manages to enlist the help of Phoenix Wright to defend Doom.
