It's the Age of Aquarius, the 1970s, and America has a dirty secret that's lining the pockets of greed-mongers. Fresh out of school, lawyer Connor J. Devlin is about to stumble into the shameful mess and launch an epic courtroom showdown. Inspired by the real life and career of one of America's most successful lawyers, The Rules of Action
is the story of one lawyer's long fight against corporate greed and indifference. The nation's elderly, in the 1960s and 1970s, are the victims of disgusting, widespread nursing home disgraces; human beings are warehoused in the name of profit. Devlin, who puts down his stake in the hot, upstart desert town of Phoenix, won't stand for it. In the confusing landscape of the Vietnam War and Jimmy Carter, Playboy Clubs and disco nights, and with an excruciating Iran hostage crisis gripping the nation, Devlin must learn the legal ropes while taking on the big business establishment bent on crushing any challengers to the system. Ultimately, it's a classic David versus Goliath fight against corporate arrogance and injustice.
