Handwritten Signatures – Now a Punch Line, Part 2

Another example that judicial signatures cannot be reliably used to verify court orders occurred when Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida Chief Judge, Belvin Perry’s signature was forged on fraudulent court orders resulting in the freeing of two prisoners convicted of murder.

In the AP/USA Today article – “Men who escaped prison with forged papers registered as felons” the judge commented:  “One of the things we have never taken a close look at is the verification of a particular document to make sure it's the real McCoy”

We offered some potential solutions in our earlier “Punch Line” article.
