The Shiloh cook, Ah Sing, has decided to open a restaurant in Medicine Bow to support the mail order bride he wants. When he applies for a license for the restaurant with the Justice of Peace, Milo Temple, it is denied because he is Chinese and a very selective law in Medicine Bow. At the same time the ranchers have hired a new attorney, Luke Evers, to represent them when Grainger's preferred attorney, Thomas Manstead, isn't competent due to alcoholism. Evers talks Temple into signing an injunction for the ranchers. After hearing about Ah Sing's problem from Grainger, Evers recommends they do not push Temple or he might revoke the injunction. After being jailed for attempting to open the restaurant without a license, Grainger pushes Manstead to represent him. Temple hires Evans to prosecute setting up a lengthy battle between the two lawyers. The case stretches Manstead's abilities to the breaking point.
