"Branch fired him?"
"Nope, he resigned."
"Smart, this way he gets to collect his full pension."
"I don't think that entered into it."
"You give people too much credit."
"You don't give people enough."
"Big risk, calling him to the stand."
"I had no choice."
"Why not wait for Eckhart to crucify him?"
"He would have lied to Eckhart. Then I'd have known that he was giving false testimony."
"He could just as easily lie to you."
"I knew he wouldn't."
"Come on. You've known the guy for fifteen years. You tell me he never lied to you?"
"Yeah, he lied to me. Just not about the law."

Background information and notes
- This episode appears to have been based off of the 2000 Wendy's massacre. On May 24, 2000, John Taylor, a former employee of a Wendy's restaurant in Flushing, Queens, and his accomplice, Craig Godineaux, entered the place in order to commit a robbery. They took six employees and the manager into the freezer, where they proceeded bounding, gagging, and shooting them point-blank in the head. All but two died, with the survivors later identifying the perpetrators. Taylor was condemned to capital punishment but later re-sentenced, after New York State declared the death penalty unconstitutional.
- This is actor Peter McRobbie first and only appearance as Judge Walter Bradley in an episode from Law & Order: Trial by Jury. He plays the same character on Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Conviction. McRobbie also appeared in different roles on Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
