Was it Harry's Law earlier this year in which Harry sued a middle school teacher for not casting a black kid as Abraham Lincoln in the school play because it was unrealistic casting even though said lad of colour was the better actor... "The boy you cast, the white boy you cast, how much more realistic in this part is he? Is he 6 foot 8 inches tall? Does he have a beard? Was he born 200 years ago? Had he ever been President of the United States?"

David pulled the same thing a few years ago in Boston legal with a little black girl getting prissy that she wasn't cast as Little orphan Annie despite having the chops to pull her weight.
Which is pretty ironic when you consider Kelley's shows have all (with the exception of Boston Public) starred white actors in the lead roles.
