About Sue

When a group of escaped patients from a mental hospital arrive in court, Elmore Watkins (Charles Bouvier), a cabbie, complains that they had him drive around the city before stiffing him on the fare. Sue, who's the visiting temp defense attorney from Legal Aid, is adamant in her defense of the patients that they're being "railroaded" in their complaints against the conditions and lack of priveleges in the hospital where they reside, that she's prepared to "Go all the way to the Supreme Court" for them if she had to, only to see the patients, with Harry's help, settle their demands with Dr. Laurence Osbourne (George Pentecost) the psychiatrist who runs the hospital.
