Attorney Ravi Batra can question “Law & Order” producer Dick Wolf in connection with a $15 million libel action the lawyer filed in 2004 against 35 defendants, including Wolf and NBC Universal, a New York judge has ruled.

The suit centers around a “Law & Order” episode entitled “Floater,” in which a bald Indian-American matrimonial attorney called “Ravi Patel” is depicted bribing a Supreme Court justice in Brooklyn. Batra, who was born in India, claimed the episode was based on a widely publicized corruption scandal involving Justice Gerald Garson and matrimonial lawyer Paul Siminovsky.
