MIDDLE EASTERN MAN IS KILLED IN WHAT APPEARS TO BE A HATE CRIME - RICHARD BROOKS GUEST STARS - A young Middle Eastern man is killed on camera in what appears to be a hate crime. Detectives Ed Green (Jesse L. Martin) and Nina Cassady (Milena Govich) quickly learn that prior to the murder the victim had made a frantic 911 call to the Joint Terrorist Task Force and Detective Henry Paulsen (guest star John Viscardi), who joins in the investigation. Once the suspect, Ben Faoud (guest star Bernardo Pena) is apprehended, A.D.A.s Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Connie Rubirosa (Alana De La Garza) succeed in convincing the F.B.I. that the suspect should be tried for murder. Faoud then hires high-power defense attorney Paul Robinette (returning guest star Richard Brooks), who demands the case be thrown out. S. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Dalton Thompson also star.
