The Case That Perry Mason Lost

Judge Sonia Sotomayor may have been stumped by Senator Al Franken's question about the one case that Perry Mason "lost," but with the help of Google, we at Wise Law Blog are not.

Here, then, is the verdict from The Case of the Deadly Verdict (10/17/1963):

Mr. Mason would have the last laugh, however, having suffered this humiliating defeat at the hands of Hamilton Berger only because his client withheld evidence that proved her own innocence.

By the end of the episode, Perry Mason had worked his magic, and she was a free woman again.
