Trial By Jury resumes crossover story from "Law & Order" as Kibre struggles to make a case against career criminal after detective is shot: Dennis Farina and Richard Belzer among guest stars -- Continuing a crossover episode from "Law & Order," A.D.A. Kibre (Bebe Neuwirth) prosecutes an elusive career criminal Lucas (guest star Ritchie Coster) for the murder of a sleazy ex-cop and the shooting of a detective. As A.D.A. Kibre's office works with Detective Fontana (Dennis Farina, "Law & Order"), they discover their prime suspect might also be a producer of "snuff" pornography. When a sting goes bad and a shocking courtroom development cuts the legs from under her case, Kibre's career teeters on finding why the shootings were committed in the first place. Richard Belzer ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit") guest-stars in a record sixth different series as Detective Munch ("Homicide," "Law & Order," "X Files" and "The Beat"). Jesse L, Martin and S. Epatha Merkerson from "Law & Order," as well as Amy Carlson, Kirk Acevedo, Fred Dalton Thompson and Scott Cohen ("NYPD Blue") also star.
