His focus on ethics leads him to a case revolving around a car model that has the potential to burst into a ball of flame with any heavy impact. Although Jedediah is initially confident of his case's success, complication arises for him on a personal level when the attorney representing the car manufacturer, Jedediah's corporate antithesis, is revealed in court as his estranged daughter, Maggie Ward.
