Never Saw the Sign

A man gets in an argument with his wife about how to best raise their son, and crashes his car, which takes the life of his spouse. An assemblyman whose main platform is making roads safer (mainly due to connections with a road construction company) takes the man to court on vehicular manslaughter charges, and TAC steps in to help the accused. Meanwhile, Marissa is acting differently than usual, leading her coworkers to speculate on why.


  • Ambiguous Disorder: What the client's son suffers from, leading to his parents arguing whether he should get special treatment, or to not further ostracize him from other children.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Part of the defense's argument is that, even though there may have been a sign warning of road issues before the client crashed, the client had no reason to consider it pertinent information at the time. They illustrate this point by removing a sign from the courtroom that had been opposite of the jury for the entire trial, and nobody can remember what was written on it...including the judge.

How well does it match the trope?
