Good Thing Dan Rather Wasn't on This One

The latest forged document story to originate in Texas occurred in a Tarrant County courthouse, where an attorney who had been shown what was purported to be an e-mail from State District Court Judge Elizabeth Berry containing a racial epithet asked that judge recuse herself in a case. That recusal motion was withdrawn by the attorney yesterday after evidence presented at a hearing clearly showed that the document was a fake.

Modern technology makes this sort of thing very easy to do, and responsible people should be cautious about believing everything they see. One can only hope that the perpetrator of the hoax, who would seem to have intentionally set out to libel Judge Berry, will be found and punished severely.
