In the middle of the night, Dr. Eggman attacks the Unnamed Village and its residents in his Moth Bot when Sonic arrives with his Swat-a-pult and pursues Moth Bot while Knuckles baits the robot into following him by holding a giant glowing light bulb. Surveying the chase from above in Tails' Plane, Tails and Sticks drop moth balls on Moth Bot to stagger it, allowing Sonic to bring it down with his weapon. In the wreckage, Eggman claims his neck is broken and has Orbot and Cubot fly him away.
The next day, Sonic and Tails are having lunch when the two are approached by a Process Server, who reveals Eggman is suing Sonic for needlessly injuring him. Sonic is unconcerned, but soon learns the seriousness of the situation when Soar the Eagle interviews him on the coming "trial of the century," which will ruin the loser's life. At the courthouse, Sonic finds Eggman in a wheelchair with T.W. Barker as his lawyer and the local residents as both the audience and the jury. Serving as Sonic's lawyer is Knuckles, which Sonic had allowed since he still thinks this trial is a joke. The officer then introduces the judge, Burnbot (under the alias of "Judge Bot"), who subtlety hints his loyalty to Eggman despite his impartialness.
Opening the case is Barker who reveals his intent to prove that Sonic injured Eggman permanently in maliciousness. Sticks is first called up as witness where she accidentally blurts out her prejudice against Eggman and his creations, as Barker states that Eggman was merely taking an evening drive in his Moth Bot when Sonic attacked him. Orbot is called up next, where he proclaims that Eggman is good-hearted and shows a (fake) film of Eggman playing compassionately with Orbot and Cubot as evidence, which moves the jury.
Tails takes his turn, whom Sonic considers him to be the most reliable witness. With Barker interrogating him, Tails lists the things he admires about Sonic, which Barker turns around to make Sonic seem like an outlaw bent on destroying anyone who disagrees with him, namely Eggman. Despite losing his case, Sonic is confident that people will believe in his innocence (unaware that Comedy Chimp has made jokes on his show about him that enforces Barker's claim).
For the next part of the trial, Knuckles calls himself up to the defense. In a humorous display of Knuckles interrogating himself, Knuckles explains that Sonic is incapable of injuring Eggman, but on the grounds that he is too incompetent. Provoked by this, Sonic makes an outburst defending himself, but only ends up incriminating himself further. With Knuckles resting his case, the jury leaves to deliberate while the rest hold a dance party. When the jury returns however, the jurors (Fastidious Beaver in particular) delay their verdict. Impatient, Burnbot deems Sonic guilty, but before making it official, Amy, who has just come back from a week-long seminar, bursts into the room and pounds the floor with her hammer in objection, shaking the whole building. Burnbot and Barker stumble, causing Eggman to turn his head around in confusion and revealing that he is not injured. With his plan now foiled, Eggman calls his robots to battle, which engages Team Sonic. As Soar is doing a news report on the trial outside the courthouse, Sonic and Eggman in his Eggmobile burst out from inside and do battle. Unfazed, Soar cuts over to Comedy Chimp's New Year's Eve event, which is rather dull.
- During the "New Years Eve Rockin' Bananaganza" scene at the end of the episode, Wolf Sidekick is shown being as tall as Comedy Chimp. In "Late Night Wars" however, Wolf is shown being a head shorter than Comedy Chimp.
