Trooper Asks Judge To Halt Transfer THE BAYTOWN SUN Thursday, December 2, 1982 BEAUMONT (AP) — A federal district judge has been asked to renew a stay of a Department of Public Safety order t-ransferring a trooper who sued the agency. Attorneys for DPS trooper James W. Wade on Wednesday asked U.S. District Judge Joe Fisher to again protect the 14- year veteran from a transfer to a drivers license bureau in Dallas. , Wade, of Orange, had been ordered last week to report for duty at the bureau Wednesday. But the trooper, who filed an ( $18 million lawsuit' against his superiors alleging harrass- ment, said Tuesday he would take medical leave for several days. The motion, seek- ing a delay of the order, was presented to U.S. District Judge Joe Fisher by Wade. If Fisher denies the request, Wade's attorneys must seek a stay from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to prevent the DPS from executing its transfer order. Wade's suit contends his bosses harassed him for objecting to a traffic ticket quota system. Wade filed the suit last summer contending his superiors in the Department of Public Safety were conducting a campaign of harassment against him because he objected to a system of traffic ticket quotas. The suit asks $15 million in damages for Wade and another $3 million for his wife, Neva, who the suit claims also has been victimized by harassment. Wade said Tuesday that since he filed the suit, he has been treated "like a stepchild" by the DPS. Instead of patrolling the highways, as he has done for 14 years, the veteran officer said he is required to sit eight hours a day in an office furnished only by a desk, a chair and a black telephone. Wood Murder Trial May Be Winding Down "My only orders are to answer the phone if it rings," he said. "It's rung four times in two months." James B. Adams, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, has denied that there is any type' of traffic ticket quota system, but he and other officials decline to discuss any of the allegations in the lawsuit. SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A surprise alibi witness for the man accused of killing a federal judge may signal the beginning of the end of a trial so long one lawyer once joked prosecutors may have decided to let defendants serve any sentence in the courtroom. Defense attorney Tom Sharpe Jr. appeared close today to resting his case after calling 20 witnesses over 12 days in an effort to bolster Charles Harrelson's contention he was in Dallas during the morning U.S. District Judge John H. Wood Jr. was assassinated in San Antonio. Attorneys for codefendants Jo Ann Harrelson and Elizabeth Chagra indicated they possibly could present their cases before the weekend. It appeared that the jury, which attorneys began selecting on Sept. 23, may not begin deliberations before sometime next week. Harrelson, 44, is accused of killing Wood on May 29, 1979, for a $250,000 payoff from Jamiel "Jimmy" Chagra, who is serving 30 years without parole for his conviction on a drug charge that had been set for trial before Wood. Harrelson Wednesday ended 33 hours of testimony over seven days, contending that he was in Dallas at the time Wood was shot with a high- powered rifle outside his San Antonio townhome. Next, the defense called the latest alibi witness — Piano sunglasses dealer and gambler Richard Thomas. He told the jury he knocked at Harrelson's Dallas apartment between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. the day of the killing and Harrelson answered the door.
