The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

10 March 2011

Harry's Law

A worthy libertarian show, with quirky characters...

Written by David E. Kelley, creator of L.A. Law, Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, Doogie Howser, MD, Picket Fences, and Chicago Hope.

It stars Kathy Bates.

In the several episodes that I've watched, there have been a few worthwhile themes:

Jury nullification, private policing of one's community, the right of small businesses to hire and fire whom they please, legal ethics when the main character denounces her own client as a murderer in court, to name a few.

A great scene: While her secretary is screaming, Kathy Bates calmly pulls out a revolver and shoots a rat across the room of her office.

For those of you who bother to watch TV at all, I recommend the show-- Monday's at 10 pm on NBC.
