(Daredevil I#380 (fb) - BTS) - Parlan was arrested for terrorism, blamed for the explosion of a Russian ship (set up by the Kingpin). (The explosion was witnessed by many, including Marty). Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson agreed to take his case, believing him innocent.

(Daredevil I#380) - As the prosecutor loudly called Farhoody a terrorist in court, Murdock comforted him, telling him his time would come soon. In his defense statement, Murdock pointed out the differences everyone saw when they looked at Farhoody. Witnesses included forensic expert Tricia Solaro. When the jury found Farhoody innocent, Farhoody thanked Murdock personally.
