Re: When testimony becomes tripe

I don't think we have to consider everything about John Trendley. We have his spoken testimony. The testimony is enough.

I also don't think trying to make fools out of reputable examiners is something that should be considered commendable. It's not.

In a questioned document case at trial you have the questioned document and the standards of comparison. Both have to be accepted by the court as evidence. These are the documents on which a judgment will be based. Writings generated by some fool that are completely outside of the questioned document and the standards of comparison are irrelevant and are not material to the case at hand.

I might add that a signature written for exhibition purposes, what Trendley was cranking out, is easier to do than an actual criminal forgery.

What Trendley was up to was manufacturing an "unfair" test for examiners in order that their truthful testimony would be discredited and mocked. If you have a warm place in your heart for unscrupulous attorneys and unscrupulous fake document examiners so be it.

        Let's take a look at what you've written shall we? Testimony is "enough." Okay, so an expert testifying that a forged document Trendley prepared was authentic is what exactly? Testimony? Next I think ... more

                Of course you don't want to evaluate based on true sciences. Its understandable and I don't blame you. So why not look at court testimony you like so much but this time from two experts testifying on ... more
