Cyrus Garza (Jimmy Smits) is a U.S. Supreme Court justice who abruptly quits the high- level position. A playboy and a gambler, Garza had always adhered to a strict interpretation of the law until he realized the system he believed in was flawed. Now that heâ€™s quit the bench and returned to private practice, heâ€™s determined to represent "the little guy" and use his inside knowledge of the justice system to take on todayâ€™s biggest legal cases. And he's making plenty of powerful people unhappy along the way. Jesse Bradford, Carly Pope, Ellen Woglom and David Ramsey also star.
