Lawrence M. Friedman and Joanna L. Grossman (Stanford University - School of Law and Southern Methodist University - Dedman School of Law) has posted Double Take: The Law of Embezzled Lives (University of Cincinnati Law Review, Vol. 83, No. 1, 2014) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This essay is about double lives and role-playing in law and society when and why it occurs, how the law responds to it, and its social meaning or significance.
The authors discuss situations in light of many examples, where it is (or was) considered wrong or illegal to live two lives; or where the "false" life is a lie of the type that would be considered gravely and impermissibly deceptive.
