Why she was convinced of that I can't quite fathom, but her actions throughout were of one who never expected to have to do anything. I begin to think she was hired to stall the legal proceedings. She proceeded almost from day one like someone who was not taking it seriously or expected to have to do anything. I don't think it even became real to her until her last attempt at a continuance foundered and she started that flurry of, as far as I can see, totally utterly useless depositions and pointless subpoenas, and by the time the wheel really met the pavement it was too late for her to do anything.
Also, too, just my WAG, I would bet that the announcement of the conviction, being handcuffed and hauled away to the pokey and then processed resulted in a shell-shocked and angry Terry Trussell. And that in the first conversation with Inger, Terry emphatically demanded that she get him the hell out of there TODAY and told her that she had screwed up the trial and that the whole damned system, the court, the judge, the prosecutor, everybody was corrupt and in on it, and so was she (IG) and that is she didn't get him out of there TODAY she was fired. Continuing my WAG surmise, Inger tried to tell him, whilst quivering and crying, that she could file a motion for bail pending sentencing and a motion to set aside the conviction, but that both would require a little time and that [a little light finally shining in Inger's head] the chance that he would get bail were not very high. Further continuing my WAG and surmise, I would suggest that Terry then performed his imitation of Adolf Hitler in the last days in his bunker, proceeding to rant and rave about how he had been betrayed by everyone and, WAIT FOR IT, he fired Inger.
Inger, finally demonstrating a modicum of intelligence, acknowledged his decision and announcement that she had been fired and quickly fled the scene, screaming, "freedom, freedom, at long last freedom," and planning on escaping into a large bottle of Jose Cuervo and a bag of limes (which would account for no one having heard from her for quite a while).
Suggestions on who will play Inger in the movie now being taken. The role of the judge would have been played by the gentlemen who played the Judge in My Cousin Vinny, but he had the bad taste to die. Tom Cruise, will of course, be playing the role of Terry Trussell, and I am thinking Tommy Lee Jones as Meggs (although he would be a fine judge). Maybe Matthew McConaughey or Tom Skerritt for Siegmeister and, ooh, I know, Inger can play Dana Johnson.
