If you want that, try rewriting the EXISTS to an IN:

   AND ("H"."tranNo", "H"."countyNo") IN
          SELECT "D"."tranNo", "D"."countyNo" FROM "TranDetail" "D"
            WHERE "D"."caseNo" LIKE '2006TR%'

We don't currently try to flatten EXISTS into a unique/join plan as we
do for IN.  I seem to recall not doing so when I rewrote IN planning
because I didn't think it would be exactly semantically equivalent,
but that was awhile ago.  Right at the moment it seems like it ought
to be equivalent as long as the comparison operators are strict.

TIP 9: In versions below 8.0, the planner will ignore your desire to
       choose an index scan if your joining column's datatypes do not
