The Nation

Texas Atty. Gen. Jim Mattox was acquitted in Austin of a commercial bribery charge resulting from allegations that he threatened a Houston law firm's lucrative bond business. He thanked about 100 supporters later outside the courthouse. Mattox was accused of threatening to withhold his required approval of municipal bonds prepared by the Fulbright & Jaworski law firm unless one of its lawyers stopped trying to question his sister in an unrelated oil rights case.
