Down in Pine Ridge Squire has had his movie theater closed down, and is to face charges in the court of Lum, Justice of the Peace.
Today Lum and Abner talk about the possibility of Squire using tactics to avoid or put the trial off. The phone rings and Lum tells the caller about the details of the case, and his worry over the appearance of using the law for personal revenge. Lum has just got word that worse things are brewing. Squire will use his position at the School Board to make waves between Lum and his girlfriend Evelina.
Squire is late, but now shows up for his trial. Squire certainly seems overly confident in the face of such serious charges. Will Lum let him off the hook? Procedures are followed and the witnesses are called.
Abner doesn’t quite grasp the protocols of a courtroom, but both grandpap and Dick give their testimonies. They present valid reasons for the violation of the fire hazard ordinance. Squire gets his moment, and relies on the implied threat regarding the phone call that had come in earlier.
What will Lum do? His hands are tied over the matter of Squire’s guilt, but he still has a free hand in the sentencing.
