Davis From Perrin Trial Reportedly Not Suffering From Memory Problems

Court FightAs I have previously discussed about this situation, Judge Heather Perrin stands accused attempting to deceive Thomas Davis, a former elderly client, into bequeathing a portion of his €1 million to her daughters. From our last discussion on this topic, Davis had taken the stand to provide his own side of the story and rebut the excuses presented by the defense. Now, it looks as if Dr. Michael Malone took the stand to address the mental cognizance of Mr. Davis. He testified that it did not appear that Mr. Davis suffered from any memory problems and concluded that Mr. Davis was "mentally fine." The prosecution hopes to use this testimony to rebut the allegations made by Judge Perrin that the mistake laid with Mr. Davis and that he had forgotten what had occurred. The doctor also stated that before Mr. Davis signed the will made by Judge Perrin, she contacted him to complete a form that attested to Mr. Davis' mental capacity. He conducted the examination and completed the form. He concluded by saying that any problems that were present occurred after the will was signed.
