Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
A superior Tim McCoy Western, Justice of the Range featured a range feud between John Mclean (Edward J. LeSaint) and his neighbor, Lafe Brennan (Jack Rutherford), each believing the other to be behind a series of cattle rustlings in Apache Basin. Hired to look into the matter by commission agent Hadley Graves (Guy Usher), range detective Tim Condon (McCoy) discovers that neither is the culprit. But before he can do anything about it, he is framed in the murder of Pegleg Sanderson (George "Gabby" Hayes), a crime actually committed by a couple of Brennan's henchmen. Tim escapes the sheriff and, together with Brennan's estranged brother, Bob (Ward Bond), discovers that the real leader of the rustlers is Graves, who had hired Tim in order to divert attention from himself. About to take over the Mclean ranch, Graves and his henchmen are arrested by Sheriff Burns (Stanley Blystone) and Tim is free to continue his budding romance with lovely Janet Mclean (Billie Seward).
