A MEMBER OF THE FIRM FALLS VICTIM TO SHIRLEY SCHMIDT'S MANDATE
TO CLEAN HOUSE, ON ABC'S "BOSTON LEGAL"
Betty White to Reprise Her Emmy-Nominated Role of Catherine Piper
"From Whence We Came" - One of the members of the firm falls victim to Shirley Schmidt's mandate to clean house and is ordered to leave immediately. Meanwhile Lori, with help from Denny Crane and Shirley Schmidt, defends a school superintendent being sued by two science teachers who were fired for refusing to teach creationism. And Bernard Ferrion, Alan Shore's client who killed his mother by whacking her with a skillet, finds himself in need of legal help once again, but Shore refers the case to Tara, as he cannot hide his disappointment in his former client.
