Eli Gold is heading to the courtroom — but for all the wrong reasons, as a defendant in the March 3 episode of CBS’ The Good Wife. We’ve got a first look at his skirmish with no less than the United States Department uf Justice, which is represented by Desperate Housewives alum Kyle MacLachlan (as Assistant U.S. Attorney Josh Perrotti).
