John Burkoff on Possible Document Forgery in the Orie Case

Publish Date/Time: 
July 10, 2011

Professor John Burkoff commented for numerous media outlets on the Secret Service's report on forged defense documents presented in the trial of State Senator Jane Orie.  The Secret Service report confirmed that the documents had, in fact, contained a forged signature, though the report did not commented on who may have committed the fraud, or when.  As Professor Burkoff explains, this may have an impact on the claims by Orie that she should not be re-tried after the judge declared a mistrial in her case.
