I just published the recap and review of Law & Order “Chattel” and then I saw information on next week’s Law & Order episode. I thought I’d publish the Law & Order and SVU episode information for the week of January 11 a little earlier than usual.

THE MURDER OF A PLAINTIFF IN A HIGH PROFILE LAWSUIT WITH A MAJOR AIRLINE LEADS DETECTIVES LUPO (Jeremy Sisto) AND BERNARD (Anothony Anderson) TO A LAWYER WHO WILL DO ANYTHING, INCLUDING MULTIPLE MURDERS AND PERJURY, TO PROTECT HIS BIG PAYDAY.

The lawsuit had been delayed due to the murder of the judge in the case. The oxygen container is key to the airline's defense in the lawsuit and Sawyer is looking to make a deal with Pan World that would leave the other plaintiffs and their attorney, Marty Winston (guest star Dallas Roberts), out of the money.
