1x18: Morelli v. Kaczmarek recap: The scene opens with preparations being made for Nick Morelli’s party. While partners Pete Kaczmarek and Nick give the organizer, Nick’s estranged wife, a tough time by arguing over details, they agree on the music act unequivocally – Frank Sinatra Junior! But Nick’s ex-wife asks them to be realistic – she is looking at a local jazz act. Not before long, they get a call from a murder scene – a dead body found at a Yoga studio. Russell Coply, the Yoga teacher, has been found murdered and the cops are suspecting a couple who own the studio. The husband and the wife both claim they were home in the morning, but the detective at the scene plays a recording from Russell’s cell phone. The husband – Mr. Donovan – threatens Russell to bury him over a business deal. Moreover, the cops have found they (the Donovans) booked a flight to India with no return tickets – were they planning to run away or something? Blake and Carly Donovan are under arrest for the murder of Russell Coply... read more.

1x16: Noland v. Galloway Pharmaceuticals recap: The scene opens and it is morning. Liza is hurrying to work after sleeping the night with ADA Matt Ward. Matt confirms that he wants her to join his side, but Liza is not giving in yet. Matt wants her to stay longer, but she doesn’t want to be late. Matt has not seen anyone so excited about a food poisoning case, but Liza surely is. When she gets to office, Zoey cannot hold her curiosity – Liza is looking sexier and is missing an earring. Later, Nick, Pete and Liza sit with Sonia, the food poisoning client allergic to dairy products, and hesitate about showing her the tape they retrieved from the restaurant. Sonia tells them that she ordered a salad, but the sauce they served had milk powder, and after eating a little bit, she could not breathe any longer. The tape shows Sonia on the restaurant floor, where the EMT officials are trying desperately to save her life. They stop the tape and tell her this is where her heart failed, and it may be a disturbing video... read more.

1x15: Nevada v. Hunter recap: The scene opens with Judge Hunter being charged with 30 counts of possession of a controlled substance – oxycodone, besides being charged with other counts that include engaging in prostitution and carrying a weapon. After Nick arrives at the scene, where the girl he was with, is being taken to the hospital in an ambulance, Hunter tells him the charges. Not before long, he is behaving over-confident, careless and is full of attitude, in spite of the arrest. At the same time, officials are being polite with him. When Nick Morelli and Judge Hunter reach the precinct, and the detective comes to record Hunter’s interview, he keeps on with his careless attitude about how good is ‘sexercising’, and how reasonably the prostitute charged him... read more.

1x14: Nevada V. Doug The Mule recap: The scene opens with Nick Morelli parking his car hastily, and runs to the courtroom. He is defending a client who has been charged with stealing items from a departmental store. As he examines his witness laboriously, Judge Hunter gets irritated and mocks Morelli with a snore. When Morelli demands respect, Judge Hunter points out that respect has to be earned in his court. Not before long, as both lawyers approach the desk, Morelli gets sarcastic and is telling Hunter how he should behave, and accuses him of hurrying the trial so that he does not miss his golf session. He is charged with contempt. Another sarcastic statement bills his fine to $250. But he’s got only 230, and the prosecution can’t lend him the extra 20 bucks because cards is all he is carrying... read more.

1x13: Nevada v. Donnie The Numbers Guy recap: The scene opens with Nick walking with Cole’s sister, Linda and he tells that he is very smooth. She kisses him and tells that he needs to come for some Brandy and Nick kisses her again. Suddenly a man in a hood comes up behind Nick and tells him to get to the van. Nick hits the panic button on his phone. The unknown kidnapper takes him to the desert. He takes him out. Nick turns around and sees that the kidnapper is Donnie Barrett, an old friend. He tells that it has been 17 years. He tells that he didn’t kill his wife and Nick tells that he thought he was innocent until he ran for it. Donnie tells that he came back for his daughter because she is having a little one of her own and he doesn’t want to miss out. The cops arrive and Nick tells that he will represent him again... read more.
