Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Dennis Haysbert stars as Joshua Finch, an outer-space circuit court judge who travels from one planet to another. Arriving in a world where no law of any kind has ever been practiced, Judge Finch must try the case of an alien accused of murdering several humans. The judge faces an especially daunting challenge: Though this is a lawless planet, it has its own peculiar definitions of truth, justice, innocence, and guilt. "Rule of Law" was first telecast on August 25, 2001.
