In one episode of Law & Order, Judge William Wright says that he's entering a not-guilty verdict after the jury foreman reads "guilty". While he can do this using "Judgement Notwithstanding", the procedure is that the defendants defense attorney must file a JNOV after the trial and in a set time frame.
Some (but not all) episodes show a disclaimer emphasizing the fictional nature of the story just prior to the closing credits. This is particularly important on those episodes that were inspired by well-known real- life legal cases.
