 "Fashion Police" -- Martin cunningly gets the mayor and, later, Sebastian, to support having Sebastian's team prosecute on behalf of the victims of a fatal sweatshop fire, despite the fact that the case hasn't officially been deemed a crime, on SHARK, Thursday, Nov. 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Arvin Brown directed the episode written by Bill Chais, one of the series' producers.  (Previously scheduled for an earlier date)

Three-time Tony Award nominee ?eljko Ivanek ("The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial," "Brighton Beach Memoirs," "Two Shakespearean Actors," "Oz," "24") returns as first-rate defense attorney Elliott Dasher, who was once Sebastian's protégé.  In this episode, Dasher ends up defending a corporation run by Z Pruitt, played by guest star Diedrich Bader ("The Drew Carey Show," "Napoleon Dynamite," "The Beverly Hillbillies").   

Sebastian's irked when he figures out that Martin leaked false information to the press as a means of getting the mayor to force Sebastian into prosecuting a seemingly "lost cause" case on behalf of the four deceased Hispanic sweatshop workers.  Initially, Sebastian's content to let Martin and the rest of the young team run the low-profile case.  However, when Martin slyly arranges for Sebastian to run into his cocky nemesis Elliott Dasher (Ivanek), the defense attorney for a major fashion corporation that ends up being named in the suit, Sebastian's suddenly motivated to win.  Meanwhile, despite Sebastian's assurances that he'll keep her from being expelled from school, Julie still feels the weight of her guilt for having cheated.
