"Justice" was a short-lived legal drama produced by Jerry Bruckheimer that aired on FOX in the USA, on CTV in Canada, on Warner Channel in Latin America, and on the Nine Network in Australia, also on TVNZ TV2 In New Zealand.

It first was broadcast on Wednesdays at 9:00 but, due to low ratings, it was rescheduled to Mondays at 9:00, in the hope viewers of the hit series "Prison Break" would stay tuned. On November 13, 2006, the show was put on hiatus, but two days later the network announced it was shifting it to Fridays at 8:00 to replace the canceled "Vanished".

Fourteen episodes of the series were ordered, of which 13 episodes were produced. Twelve of the episodes of "Justice" have aired in the United States with the final episode airing in Mexico.

On May 16, 2007, the series was officially canceled. [ [http://www.tvseriesfinale.com/2007/05/2007_cancelled_shows_fox_cancels_plenty_of_series.php Fox cancels plenty of series] ]

Premise

"Justice" is about a team of lawyers from different backgrounds who work at the Los Angeles law firm of Trott, Nicholson, Tuller & Graves (TNT&G) and defend clients involved in controversial and newsworthy cases. While criminal defense is most common, other cases may strike the interest of the firm such as wrongful death and other civil cases. As the title implies, the viewer discovers whether or not "justice" has been served following the verdict, when what really transpired is revealed to the audience.

Cast and characters

Ron Trott

: "Portrayed by Victor Garber"He is the head of TNT&G. His overbearing personality and gleefully amoral approach to the practice of law make him exasperating to many -- including juries -- but he is a skilled, media-savvy lawyer who shares a good rapport and working relationship with his other TNT&G partners.

He is the face seen on every media talk show in the country -- and he wants it that way. He’s great at landing a client, spinning a case and getting his way, but juries hate him. It was his inspiration and win-at-all-cost mentality that brought this group of brilliant, ego-driven attorneys together.

Tom Nicholson

: "Portrayed by Kerr Smith"He is an idealistic trial lawyer. A native of a small Nebraska town, he had a younger sister who died in her late teens. He is only comfortable defending clients whom he believes to be innocent. His youth and appealing demeanor as the all-American face of "not guilty" are cited by Ron as the reason that Tom (rather than Ron himself) should lead most trial representations.

Tom is a brilliant litigator whose everyman, earnest manner makes him Ron's alter ego. Trials are won and lost on the art of battle in the courtroom, and Tom is a master of his domain.

Alden Tuller

: "Portrayed by Rebecca Mader"She processes the physical evidence and hires experts for courtroom demonstrations. Although she is unmarried, Alden wears a wedding ring in court in the belief that it helps jurors trust her. Unlike Tom, she prefers to believe that her firm's clients are guilty rather than innocent.

Luther Graves

: "Portrayed by Eamonn Walker"He is a former prosecutor-turned-defense lawyer. A leader in the African-American political community, he is well-connected, politically motivated and in possession of an uncanny ability to take a step back and assess the merits of a case from both the prosecution’s and the defense’s perspective -- anticipating the story each side will tell. His role at TNT&G frequently centers on predicting the moves of the prosecution (or the opposing party in civil suits). He's fluent in Spanish, as seen in the show's last episode.

Recurring cast and characters

*Katherine LaNasa as Suzanne Fulcrum, the host of a cable news program called "American Crime". Her coverage of the case in question is featured in several episodes. Suzanne has something of a love/hate relationship with Trott. While she likes the popularity of the cases tried by his firm, she despises his attempts to use her show to his advantage.

*Aunjanue Ellis as Miranda Lee, a jury consultant frequently employed by TNT&G. She possesses an uncanny insight into the mindset of potential jurors, and her input is often invaluable as the firm develops its legal strategies.

*Mark Deklin as Dr. Matthew Shaw, a scientific expert hired by TNT&G to help with crime recreations.

*Erin Daniels as Betsy Harrison, an ex-LAPD employee who worked with Luther back when he was a DA. She currently works as the firm's private investigator. Appears in "Addicts", "Crucified", and "Shotgun".

*Paul Schulze as J.D. Keller, the District Attorney often is on the opposing side of cases tried by TNT&G. Appears in "Pretty Woman", "Crucified", and "Prior Conviction".

*Dahlia Salem as Susan Hale, a District Attorney on the opposing side of a few cases tried by TNT&G. Appears in "Prior Conviction", "Shotgun", and "Christmas Party".
