Maxine can't help but feel that it isn't fair that Amy's the one getting married instead of her tying the knot with Jared.

Meanwhile, Amy's concerned when a man accused of trying to kill a Catholic priest elects to represent himself in court; and Kyle's waiting on pins and needles to see if he landed the attending-physician job.

Amy's first capital murder case has reached the sentencing phase, which is nerve-racking enough without the added headache of ASA David McClaren (Adrian Pasdar) making comments in his closing remarks that she deems to be inappropriate. Later, a dinner date Amy has arranged for Lauren and Stu brings to the surface Stu's hidden fear of kids. In another story line, Kyle meets his new boss, whom he had encountered earlier at an AA meeting, so naturally they get off to an awkward start. Lily: Kristin Lehman.

Critic Reviews for Judging Amy Season 5

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)
