The Supreme Conspiracy Theory

I'm watching "The Pelican Brief", a movie from 1993 (that I must say I'm quite fond of) that chronicles the adventures of Darby Shaw (played by Julie Roberts), a law student in Tulane University that writes a theory on the assassinations of two Supreme Court justices.

*** SPOILER ALERT ***

If you haven't seen "The Pelican Brief" and intend to do so, do not read any further!

*** SPOILER ALERT ***

In short, it turns out that Darby's theory for the assassinations of the Supreme Court justices is based on the desire of the "bad guy" to replace the justices when he can predict their replacements. In other words, the "bad guy" was a major campaign contributor to the president (in the movie) and as such, "wants" a favor when it comes to lifetime federal court appointments.

Hmm, I wonder why this somewhat forgotten movie from 1993 becomes the prime time draw 13 years later?
