Description


Lawyers, Lies, Corruption, Money and Murder A father-daughter legal team scheme to keep their fortunes and law licenses, while Texas Matters Magazine and one of its young journalists frantically fight for their survival battling a "bet-the-company" libel case.

Leah Rosen, a young reporter with Texas Matters Magazine, hires prominent Fort Worth attorney Jace Forman to defend her in a lawsuit filed by Cal Connors, a flamboyant plantiff lawyer with questionable ethics and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Connors' lawsuit seeks millions in damages allegedly caused by Rosen's article, which exposed a multi-million dollar fraud on the Texas jury system and, in the process, sparked a full-scale criminal investigation by the US Attorney into the conduct of Connors and his law partner and daughter Christine. Cornered and desperate, their freedom and fortunes at stake, Connors and his daughter go on a scorched-earth offensive, in a frantic attempt to derail the investigation.
