In early 1995, the Dallas County courthouse raged with paranoia. Robert Rose--a natorious defense attorney with a reputaion for living well off the cash he collected representing drug dealers--endered a secret plea to federal charges of tax evasion. The plea was sealed for five months, presumably while Rose cooperated with federal investigators plumbing allegations of courhouse corruption. Rumors of payoffs and kickbacks abounded, and one local television station swent so far as to report that the indictment of four judges on corruption charges was imminent. Mysterious affidavits surfaced, in which a questionable informant claimed to have seen two prominent judges accept cash payoffs. (Aug. 24, 1995)
