EADA Jack McCoy:
You can re-write the law when you're appointed to the Supreme Court.
D.A. Arthur Branch: God willing.
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 defendant's defense attorney must file a JNOV after the trial and in a set time frame.
At the start of the season one episode "Torrents of Greed, Part 2" the customary "In the criminal justice system..." opening monologue and screen title were replaced with a monologue and screen title about manipulation of the legal system.
Rebroadcasts on TNT were digitally altered to include product placements.
