County grand jury member Clifford E. Clinton (far left) and Attorney A. Brigham Rose (middle) in the courtroom. Rose and Clinton, along with Clinton's fellow grand jury member Harry L. Ferguson and Rose's legal secretary Pauline Huff were charged with contempt when they allegedly withheld information regarding Clinton's investigation of vice and gambling in Los Angeles county. Superior Judge Wilson dropped the charges, calling them legally insufficient. An attempt to renew the citations of contempt was quickly abandoned when Rose, Clifford, Ferguson, and Huff finally took the stand to testify. Rose and Clinton were again together in the courtroom when private detective Harry Raymond was the victim of a car bomb. Raymond had been doing work for Rose and Clinton concerning a bankruptcy hearing.
