COURTHOUSE LEAK 1-1-1-1-1-1
Not long ago, officials announced that the leaks
in the new Dallas County Courthouse had been found
and fixed. But today, Assistant District Attorney
Myron Garner was manning a mop as water trickled
from the eighth-floor jail into the D-A's office
below. The leak started about 11 o'clock in the
office of Assistant D-A John Vance. About noon, it
spread into the adjacent office of Chief Felony
Prosecutor Frank Watts, who was out to lunch.
The leaks were far removed from the area of the
previous trouble. One employe remarked that the
series of leaks seemed headed toward the office of
the boss, District Attorney Wade. Later " today,
authorities explained that county employes had beer
pouring water down various drains on the eighth
floor to see if they could find any more leaks.
Here’s what’s next.
