The harsh reality of racism against Muslims is the issue in Nick Fallin's most recent case for Legal Services. The parents of Perry Hudson, a young Caucasian male, are suing Ahmad Hassan, a Middle-Eastern restaurant owner, for assault and battery. Ahmad broke Perry's hand with a bat after Perry vandalized and broke into Ahmad's restaurant. Nick suggests that Ahmad counter with charges of a hate crime but Ahmad hesitates due to the trouble it may bring. Then, the case takes on a new twist when Nick discovers that Ahmad's daughter, Salaam, had recently broken off a relationship with Perry. Now the question becomes: was this crime motivated by hate or love? Meanwhile, loyalties at Fallin & Assoc. are tested as one of the long-time partners, Larry Hines, leaves the firm for one of Burton's biggest competitors, Kirk & McGee. Larry not only attempts to steal clients but also tries poaching the associates at Fallin & Assoc., including Nick.
