Short summary

Will and Alicia go up against their old nemesis, Patti Nyholm when their clients' insurance company refuses to pay for vital in-utero surgery for their as yet unborn child. Nyholm is arguing that it's an experimental procedure not covered by their policy but what she really wants is for him to drop the class action suit he has going on behalf of 68 other couples who were also refused coverage.

    This was absolutely one of the best episodes of this wonderful ongoing show. Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles give Emmy nominated calibrated performances in this show. Human dignity and the human side of people were both vividly shown here.

    The company argues a case where an insurance company will not cover the needed operation to save a fetus. The company resorts to all kinds of gimmicks including the fact that the father of the child had lied on his application to get insurance. It is only when our law firm is able to show that they purposely go after applications when it appears that they have to pay for procedures, is just done.

    The human side is that the head of the law firm finally shows he is human and shows it towards Alicia.

    Alicia immediately runs home to her husband who is working with a black minister so as to improve his poll numbers among black women.

    An insightful show, one of the best this season. Very highly recommended to all.
