Harry starts feeling his age when a young turk breaks his record as the youngest judge ever appointed, and vies for his title as the courtroom's greatest prankster.
Harry becomes uncharacteristically glum and morose after an elderly judge dies after one of Harry's pranks, so his friends urge him to respond when a new judge lays claim to Harry's crown as the "King of the Courtroom Cutups."
