Star Wars #44

In a desperate, but ultimately successful, move to save Lobot's life, Lando Calrissian's treachery in selling information about the Rebel Alliance to Jabba the Hutt has been revealed. Rather than run from the truth, Lando has admitted his crimes. While Admiral Ackbar and General Madine seem perfectly at ease with jettisoning the traitor out of the nearest airlock, Leia makes an impassioned plea for the Rebellion to prove they are better than the Empire setting up a trial over the fate of Lando Calrissian.

After much setup, we are introduced to Lando's lawyer Salli Georgio who is still finding her strategy as the trial commences, as she points out the judges know Lando is guilty but what they need to offer is a reason for them not to care. Just in time for a much-needed distraction, Mon Mothma (serving as a judge by Holonet) is taken prisoner which makes me wonder if/how the trial will continue at the same time a rescue mission goes underway or if Lando's fate will have to wait for another day.
