Fairplay later takes part in Sōseki Natsume's trial in the attempted murder of Viridian Green. When he first votes guilty he asks if Sōseki Natsume admited himself. When Naruhodō presses him, the banker is not happy for accusing him and Adam Redifast as killers. He's been questioned by the police due to rumors in vicinity and all his doubts have been cleared, it's because of that he finds someone guilty now. The second time he votes guilty he states that Natsume left three books and the crime scene. When his fellow juror, Joan Garrideb wife of Natsume's landlord, is revealed to be the culprit, Fairplay admits that false charges are bad.

As Juror No. 1

When he's ready to vote for the verdict the first time he's had enought of the trial and has the rest of vote guilty despite having a little hope for Naruhodō.

He has no reason to doubt him but promises to change his verdict if Petenshy is lying and has the other male jurors agree. Mrs. Altamont eventually gives him this tidbit by revealing the possibility of him steal gas from her company. Being a gentlemen who keeps is promise, Fairplay changes his verdicts and encourage the other gentlemen to follow suit.

Ryūnosuke Naruhodō suggest they listen to Sōseki Natsume about it, as he's been having has leaks. So Fairplay agrees to change his verdict.
