QUESTIONED DOCUMENTS

  1. It is a compliment to monetary stability when currency is forged.

    -Jay Levinson in his book “Questioned Documents - A Lawyer’s Handbook”, Academic Press 2001, page 165

  2. It is competent for a judge and jury to compare the handwriting of a disputed document.

    -A Canadian Court in 1918, in the case Rohoel v. Darwish, 1 WWR 627; 13 Altn LR 180 (Quoted by Jay Levinson in his book “Questioned Documents - A Lawyer’s Handbook”, Academic Press 2001, page 1)

  3. No matter how extensive his background may be, no document examiner can know all the answers to all the questions.

    -Jay Levinson in his book “Questioned Documents - A Lawyer’s Handbook”, Academic Press 2001, page 24

  4. “Handwriting” is not hand writing.

    -Ron N. Morris in his book “Forensic Handwriting Identification: Fundamental concepts and principles”, Academic Press 2000, page 1

    (N.B. To those who find this interesting little quote confounding, the following lines from the same page may be quoted. Morris follows up this quote with this: There are a substantial number of people who are not able to use their hand so they write with their foot, mouth etc. Writing is actually a brain function and the hand, foot, mouth etc are merely the devices which carry out brain orders.)
