The forensic document examiner looked for similarities and differences in handwriting to determine if Newman's signature was genuine or a forgery. The examiner also examined the line quality of the signature for evidence that it was not natural handwriting. A line quality examination considers the smoothness of the line, pressure of the pen on the paper, and unusual starts or stops of the writing instrument. Even though these signatures look exactly the same, an examiner
determined that one was a forgery. How do you think she made that decision?
