"Roe" was Norma McCorvey. "Wade" was the DA of Dallas County, Texas. Roe is often used in the same way as Doe, as in John Doe, in lawsuits when the individuals identity is to be protected from the media. For some reason after Doe, the next named used is Roe.
ROE ET AL. v. WADE, DISTRICT ATTORNEY OF DALLAS COUNTY is the longer title. The case in the Texas court was named Jane ROE, Plaintiff, v. Henry WADE, Defendant, v. James Hubert HALLFORD, M.D., Intervenor. John DOE and Mary Doe, Plaintiffs, v. Henry WADE, Defendant.
