The Good Fight Season 5 Episode 7
And the fight had a detente...
Wackner decides to adjudicate two instances of 'cancel culture.'
The first is a college professor fired for using a word similar to the n-word.
Marissa doesn't give it her all at first, believing the professor was unfairly canceled, but after realizing things aren't as black and white as she made it, she steps up her game.
The professor is ultimately sentenced to cleaning the college's bathrooms.
The second case involves a problematic comedian, who masturbated into plants in front of multiple women.
Marissa brings her A-game but is upset when she learns about Wackner's possible conflict of interest.
She confronts him, and he goes off on her.
He later apologizes.
Wackner ends up sentencing the comedian to three weeks in jail.
Diane and Liz represent the family of an unarmed Black teenage girl who died after being tased by a white police officer.
However, they're thrown for a spin when the white police officer is gunned down.
They rush to figure out a way for the judge to declare a mistrial but are one juror short.
After a right-wing TV commentator "outs" Diane and Liz as a lesbian couple, they use that to their advantage to secure a mistrial.
