Judicial Indiscretion

When Monica Barrett, a federal court justice, decides to go on a vacation in San Francisco after she receives a nomination to the US Supreme Court, she runs into Jack Sullivan who claims to be an up and coming writer, and manages to drug her drink and rape her. Once she gets the position she finds Sullivan still stalking her and claiming to have a video of them having sex that he will release on the internet if she doesn't withdraw.

When Monica Barrett (Anne Archer), a federal court justice, decides to go on a vacation in San Francisco after she receives a nomination to the US Supreme Court, she runs into Jack Sullivan (Michael Shanks) who claims to be an up and coming writer, and who manages to drug her drink and rape her. Instead of telling the police and preserving the evidence, she scrapes herself clean and rushes home to her daughter Jennifer (Erin Karpluk), and tells only her mother Victoria (Anna Hagan) about the despicable events she had lived.

Monica does in fact get appointed as a Supreme Court judge with the unlikely support of opposing-party senator Garland Wolf (William B. Davis) even though one of her rulings previously cost him $8 million. She discovers that Sullivan is still stalking her and claiming to have a video of them having sex that he will release on the internet if she doesn't withdraw from her appointment.

Is Jack just a free-lance blackmailer or is he doing this as part of a plot masterminded by someone else, and if so, who?
