 [--] Sirota's Court: (episode title not known)
Judge Sirota's night court has a busy schedule - a dog-napping case, a determination of whether a film is
pornographic or not, whether or not to marry a gay couple with a marriage license, and what to do about
"Blackie" Wilson - a mobster whom the Judge locked up 10 years ago. "Blackie" has just been released, and all
are fearful that he'll seek revenge upon the judge. [RL]
