(Daredevil II#96 (fb) - BTS) - Distract attorney Palmer represented the city in the case of Melvin Potter, the former Gladiator, who killed two men while incarcerated at Ryker’s Island. Potter was transferred to Bellevue, a psychiatric unit for the criminally insane, where Palmer authorized that Potter be tranquilized until they could get him back to Ryker’s. Previously, his employee Gus had been assigned to the case.

(Daredevil II#96) - Attorneys Matt Murdock and Becky Blake met with Palmer and defended Potter, stating that they believed he’d had a mental break. Though Palmer told them Potter would be sent back to Ryker’s, Murdock demanded that Potter be given a psychiatric evaluation first, and remain mentally cognizant. Palmer, Blake, Murdock, and Gus watched through a mirror as Dr. Devereaux completed a psychiatric evaluation. She made the determination that he was lying and that he was faking being sick. Becky was outraged as was Gus, who was silenced by Palmer. Palmer indirectly accused Matt of being Daredevil and refused to let Potter free from Ryker’s. He offered the deal that Potter be given four counts of manslaughter one and be sentenced to fifteen years. Becky still wanted a hospital sentence instead and Palmer and Devereaux departed to give them time to think it over.
