Wow...this is cool, especially since it doesn't happen as often now as it did early on in the show's run.

Thanks, Jason.

Cool stats Jason. Thanks for all you do. By the way, do you by any chance know the start (or at least close) date of Tom Horton's malpractice trial? Late 1965 or early 1966? Thanks

It looks like the trial started on Episode # 45, on January 11, 1966. That's the date that Byron Morrow (Judge), Otis Greene (Bailiff), Ben Bennett (Court Clerk), Curtis Ivey (Juror), Shelly Bruce (Juror) and Fred Rapport (Juror) all debut. And the trial wraps up on Episode # 60 (February 1, 1966).
