Probably not to that stage yet. First would be an expensive lunch, paid for by an expensively-dressed man or woman from a prestigious Beltway law firm with connections all over. The judge will be apprised of the wide array of "plata o plomo" offers he may be able to choose from. Depending on his performance and the eventual outcome, he can expect greased skids just short of the Supreme Court, or a corner office with a no-show job in a prestige law firm or "consulting firm".
If needed, someone can make a follow-up visit to go into more details of the "plomo" options. That will probably happen in an armored black Chevy Suburban, rather than a ritzy restaurant. Bottled water may be offered.
Yeah, I can see it playing that way. Plomo o plata. Nothing new in Nuevo Mejico. That border crossed us again, the other way.
