Alicia and Diane are put in the odd position of representing a judge, the honorable Richard Cuesta, who has been accused of misconduct in a murder trial he handled for the state as a prosecutor twenty years earlier. New DNA evidence has overturned the conviction, and Cuesta faces removal from the bench if heâ€™s found guilty. With Cuesta backed against a wall, the Lockhart/Gardner team realizes that they must stretch the truth in order to mount their best defense. With tensions rising, Alicia and Diane realize that Judge Cuestaâ€™s adherence to the truth might make him his own worst enemy. When FBI agent Lana Delaney approaches LeMond Bishop, the drug dealer blames Kalinda for the federal attention â€" an accusation that might have grave consequences. Meanwhile, as new named partner Howard Lyman grows increasingly erratic, Will and Diane discuss hiring a new litigator. After two years, in the stateâ€™s attorneyâ€™s office, Cary Agos returns to his old home at Lockhart/Gardner.
