Legal Trouble is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V given by Solomon Richards to Michael De Santa.


Michael walks into Solomon's office, where Devin Weston and Molly Schultz are sitting. Weston congratulates Michael on his efforts with Meltdown, and he tells him that they are pulling the plug on the film to collect a massive insurance payout. Weston states that he plans on using the payout to buy out Solomon's son, close the Richards Majestic studio, and demolish the film lot to build condos. Solomon enters his office with the physical print of the film, insulting Weston and Molly in the process. Solomon pleads with Weston to at least allow him to finish the film before closing the studio; however, Molly states that their timetable does not allow it, and Solomon reluctantly gives the film reel to her. Michael asks where she is taking it, and Weston states that she is taking it offshore to a secure location. Michael refuses to allow his first legitimate work be destroyed, so he leaves the office to chase after Molly.

As Michael heads for the airport, Weston calls him to tell him to back down, stating that Molly is being escorted by the LSPD and security at the airport works for him. When Michael catches up to Molly, she is driving erratically, while police are behind her telling her to slow down. The chase goes into the airport's tarmac, where several police cars are destroyed in the process. Molly eventually stops at Weston's hanger, where she runs inside in a panic, believing that Michael wants to kill her. Michael chases her into the main bay, where a jumbo jet's turbine is running. The engine's vacuum causes Molly to drop the film, and she is sucked into the turbine and killed instantly, leaving only a bloody mess across the hanger's floor.

After escaping from the police, Michael calls Solomon to tell him that he recovered the physical print; however, Solomon reveals that he had digital backups of the film; however, he states that they do need to finish the film before Weston can screw them over again. Solomon tells Michael that he is planning a premiere for Meltdown at the Oriental Theater; Michael asks Solomon to invite his family to the premiere, and Solomon tells Michael that it's already done.
