C. McGarvey was a corrupt judge residing in Star City.
Some months later, McGarvey had DA Sam Armand, along with Jean Loring and Oliver Queen, in his chambers after Armand presented a witness in his case against Oliver as the Green Arrow, the judge allowing it due to the witness' number of enemies on both sides of the law.
McGarvey later presided over The People v. Oliver Jonas Queen. Before he could come to a final verdict, he was knocked out by John Diggle and Rene Ramirez, being briefly replaced by a disguised Christopher Chance. Due to his replacement's actions as him, McGarvey was brought before Ricardo Diaz, before being shot dead when he tried to explain himself.
- High-level intellect/Master lawyer/Political acumen: McGarvey was a highly respected judicator. McGarvey's experience with the legal system enabled him to successfully sentence virtually every criminal he prosecuted.
