I would expect two experts would be considered "equals." However, if one examined "less" material then I think that would start to upset that balance and question the equality between the two.

So who examined more? Well let's see....

Judge Lacey ordered that he be granted total access to all of handwriting evidence the NJSP had. Up until that point he was the only Expert outside of the NJSP to have this complete access.

Can you Script say that you examined ALL of the handwriting evidence available at the NJSP Archives? If not you are not equal. Next, you've already claimed you did not examine these other documents that you say originated from Bryan.

The bottom line is this: He had access to the "request writings." If what Fisher wrote in Ghosts was true, and I have no doubt it was, then it was the EXPERT himself who made the decision about what to use and what not to. I would expect that he examined them first before making the decision not to use them but I wasn't there. Regardless, I do know he had complete access to them. But this idea that he was "duped" or some other wild excuse (e.g. "maligned standards") is outrageous.

It suggests this Expert could not see with his very own eyes under microscopic examination something Script apparently sees without even looking.

    I do not know how Kennedy obtained Gus' opinion. I do know that Gus had been examining questioned documents for years for the government and in 1981 he went into private practice. Kennedy's book came ... more

      I understand the logic here Michael, but I also have to believe that unless he lived in a cave, Gus Lesnevich would have understood categorically that Hauptmann was the writer of the Lindbergh... more

        We only have Gus Lesnevich's professional opinion in the back of Kennedy's book. His detailed examination "findings" were not explained. Robert Bryan has the complete written report and the standards ... more

          It's still an unusual situation the way I see it Michael, because I can't imagine any QDE who hasn't been living under a rock to not understand that it was Hauptmann who wrote each and every ransom... more

            I'm just as perplexed about it as you are Joe. This may be an itch we will never get to scratch. Kennedy also included Gunter Haas' contrary handwriting opinion in his book. Haas was a graphologist.... more
