** ADVANCE FOR MONDAY, APRIL 9 **A. Alfred Taubman is shown in his office in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., Wednesday, April 4, 2007. Ignoring all of his instincts, Taubman stayed silent during the price-fixing trial that would end with a prison sentence for the former owner of Sotheby's auction house. It was a decision that the luxury mall developer and philanthropist sees as a critical mistake as he reflects on a career in retailing that began as a discount store salesman and would eventually put him at the center of an art world scandal.
