Attorney's Federal Forgery Conviction Upheld By Second Circuit

Perry Reich was convicted of forging a magistrate judge's order and faxing it to an opposing attorney.  His section 505 conviction was just affirmed by the Second Circuit.  Here is the Law.com story on it, reporting that the ruling "put an end to a case that surprised and saddened many in the New York legal community who knew Reich as an accomplished appellate lawyer."  The appeals court found that no intent to defraud, in the monetary or property sense, was required.  [Alan Childress]
