Blind Justice is a series about a detective returning from an injury, one that places him in an odd situation, as a blind police officer. Detective Jim Dunbar (Ron Eldard) has some trouble as he attempts to readjust to being an active police officer. Trouble comes from his own wife, Christie Dunbar (Rena Sofer), who is trying to be helpful but is somewhat tired of Jim's anger. Trouble also comes from fellow police officers, who have a mistaken impression about how Jim became injured. Importantly, trouble also comes from the public at large, who are not particularly happy to learn that the detective investigating is blind. Detective Karen Bettancourt (Marisol Nichols) is Jim's partner.
