Adversarial Relationship with Jack McCoyEdit
Judge William Wright had an adversarial relationship with ADA Jack McCoy, often using his position as Judge to dismiss several of McCoy's convictions. In "Damaged", he overturns a rape conviction of a group of teenagers who had sex with a mentally retarded teenage girl, citing her testimony that it was consensual.
In "Gunshow", he overturns a conviction against a gun manufacturer, who had sold guns that could be modified to make them even more deadly, because the prosecution was unable to establish how hazardous the weapon used in a mass murder was, nor that the shooter used it as intended by the manufacturer.
The character made his last appearance in the Trial By Jury episode "Truth or Consequences".
