Cast & Crew
Newly elected judge John Fairbrother is impassioned when it comes to the laws affecting the dives and cabarets of the city, promising equal justice for all. His wife's prominent two brothers, editor George Ferguson and Bishop Ferguson, who have worked hard to elect Fairbrother to office, are puzzled by the judge's interest in these usually tabooed issues, but both agree to stand behind him. On the day when Fairbrother takes his seat on the bench for the first time, however, two young women, arrested in a raid on a local dive, are brought before him for sentencing. The judge demands to know the names of the men who were in the company of the girls at the time of their arrest. He is shocked to discover that one is Charles Ferguson, the son of the editor, while the other is the nephew of the bishop. Enforcing his principles, Fairbrother demands that the men stand trial with the women. This causes much consternation, but the judge smoothes out the dilemma and devises a fair method for solving the double standard.
According to the synopsis in the copyright descriptions, Frank Elliott played "Bishop Ferguson." This was probably an erroneous listing.
