QUOTE: "Bernard Weinstein. The slickest criminal lawyer in the country. We're talking about the first man Lex Luthor called the one and only time he was arrested. Weinstein had him out in minutes." —Attorney Toffler

SUMMARY:  A vacation getaway has ended in tragedy for the three youngest members of the Justice League. Wally West, Kyle Rayner, and Connor Hawke booked a weeklong trip on the Alaskan cruise ship Aurora Borealis in an effort to get away from it all, completely unaware that the supervillains known as Heatwave, Sonic, and Hatchet were onboard as well. The villains were scheming to resurrect a comatose Doctor Polaris. Their efforts ended with the dangerous villain's awakening and inevitable disaster at sea. Although the Flash was able to disable Polaris, and Green Arrow and Green Lantern were able to save most of their fellow passengers, forty-two people died as a result of the sinking of the ship. Now the three supervillains who set the plan in motion find themselves on trial, facing a jury for their crimes. Will the testimony of three Justice Leaguers be enough to put them away? The trio have hired Bernard Weinstein, the most successful criminal defense lawyer in the country, to ensure that they will go unpunished. The Flash, Green Arrow, and Green Lantern must play by the rules of the courtroom to ultimately outmaneuver their foes.
