Still Crazy After All These Years

Synopsis Edit

A civil-rights issue hinges on the casting choice for a version of “Annie”. Alan Shore is assigned a case in which a mother wants to sue the producers of Annie after her daughter is refused the title role because she is black; a child-custody battle turns ugly; an adultery case involves Crane. Rev. Al Sharpton portrays himself. When Edwin Poole (Larry Miller) is institutionalized, Paul Lewiston asks Brad Chase to return to the Boston office; Brad and Sally Heep file an emergency appeal when a client's ex-husband will not allow her to take her children to New York; Denny Crane tries to prevent his client from hiring a private investigator to find out who his wife's lover is, and Lewiston assigns Lori Colson to ensure that an investigator is not hired.
