“Who Wrote That Email?”

Forensic Authorship Attribution and Stylometry

TASA ID: 3949

Some cases hinge on the authorship of a document.   Whether we want to know about the author of a defamatory email, the source of a ransom note, or the authenticity of a will, one of the most important pieces of evidence is the one that establishes who wrote it.    Historically, most documents were handwritten and handwriting experts (today they go by the title “forensic document examiners”) could determine who wrote something from the slant of an f or the height of a t.  Even with typewritten documents, they could notice a chipped or an out-of-line c and identify the specific typewriter that created the document.   Physical creation also produces physical variance.

DEFAMATION

TOP 10 Guiding Principles of Negative Communications That Result In Image and Reputation Damage

TASA ID: 2156

In its simplest definition, defamation is defined as “the action of damaging the good reputation of someone.” Defamation results from some form of negative communications, whether written (libel) or verbal (slander). Negative communications are extremely powerful and in most instances, difficult to counter or overcome – mainly because of human nature and psychology.   When some person, business or entity is defamed, there are factors that come into play that generally are irreversible.  To fully understand how defamation impacts the image and reputation of the recipient, it is important to know some guiding principles of negative communications:

Protect Yourself From Medicolegal Risk

TASA ID: 1466

This article was originally published by Review of Optometryhttps://www.reviewofoptometry.com/article/protect-yourself-from-medicolegal-risk

Getting sued for malpractice is a no-win situation. Even if you’re not at fault, you still lose your time and suffer from the emotional toll and overall distraction. 

Fortunately, malpractice payments on behalf of optometrists are rare; on average, there are less than 34 cases nationally each year, and half of them are less than $50,000. But for each malpractice payment, there are even more claims. In ophthalmology, from 1985 to 2007, for every malpractice indemnity payment there were roughly four claims. Over the course of a 35-year career, 95% of ophthalmologists will have one claim against them, and more than half can expect two or three. While optometry may never incur the same level of risk, ODs must remain diligent as practitioners provide more and more medical services.

HEALTH CARE VS HEALTH INSURANCE

TASA ID: 3656

Politicians speak of health care and most individuals think of health care in terms of whether or not they have health insurance. Hence there is heightened panic expressed in the news media about the recent removal of the individual and employee mandates and the anticipated millions of additional people without health insurance. The message generated is that all those people will be without health care.

Parental Alienation in Child Custody Litigation

TASA ID: 54

When marital discord evolves into hatred, many couples are quick to see divorce as their best option. Divorce may be an easy way out for the couple; but it often wreaks havoc on the children.  Family Court judges welcome mental health professionals to guide them in determining the future best interests of the children.  These “guides” are called Custody Evaluators.  When the Custody Evaluator correctly identifies Parental Alienation (PA), the evaluator can recommend a particular strategy that best serves the interests of the child.
