A child passes out and is hospitalized after having a huge amount of detergent in her stomach. Her sister reveals their mother forced the child to drink it, but a judge disqualifies the sister's testimony. Novak and Clark investigate the judge due to his prior mishandling of an earlier child abuse case, in which he falsely jailed a woman.
