Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the ninth episode of Walt Disney's ten-part miniseries Elfego Baca, frontier lawyer Baca (Robert Loggia) accepts a stallion in payment for helping beleagured cattleman Frank Oxford (Ray Teal). It seems that Rauls Kettrick (Barton MacLane), the town boss of Taota, refuses to return 50 head of Oxford's cattle which "wandered" onto Kettrick's land. Pursuing the case through the proper legal channels, Baca obtains a warrant to search Kettrick's property, but the warrant is not honored--and Taota's only lawyer, who is in Kettrick's pocket, refuses to take action. Thus it is that Baca must rely upon the strategies of his gunslinging days to bring justice to the situation. "Friendly Enemies at Law" was originally telecast as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology.
