Board of Forensic Document Examiners, Inc. v. American Bar Association

A member of the American Board of Forensic Document Examiners writes an article for an American Bar Association journal, in which he opines that judges should trust handwriting experts certified by the ABFDE and “be wary of other certifying bodies.” Board of Forensic Document Examiners: Say what! We’re an “other certifying body,” and that spurious article has defamed our esteemed members. Seventh Circuit: “[T]he appropriate avenue for expressing a contrary point of view was through a rebuttal article, not a defamation lawsuit.”
