For those of you who do not watch that Grey's Anatomy of legal dramas The Deep End, I've decided to keep you posted on the wild and crazy (and completely unrealistic) antics of its as-yet-unrelateable characters.
In the third episode of the series, Addie and Beth are horrified to learn that they are representing the defendant in a sexual harrassment case. I suppose law school didn't teach them that even a defendant needs representation. Even if the defendant is completely guilty of doing exactly what he is accused of. Like speaking to women as if they are choice cuts of meat.
Meanwhile, our character with hero-issues, Dylan, tries his hardest to keep a pregnant woman from being sent back to China, based on the fact that her baby is an American citizen. Whether it's legally sound or not, his argument makes logical sense. The baby, he argues was conceived by at least one American, and the pregnancy has reached the state of viability. Therefore, since in criminal law, anyone who killed the baby at this stage would be tried for a homicide, the unborn yet viable child has a right to due process. I like it. If we ever have a similar case at our firm, I wonder if we can cite to the Deep End transcript?
Because Liam decided to get all wooey with Beth and Addie is having some weird love connection with Malcolm, there wasn't much room left in the script for more legal adventures. Stay tuned for next weeks rundown...
