The Estate of Sam Sheppard’s motion to exclude the handwriting analysis of the word “yes.” Sam allegedly wrote the word under the phrase “Did Sam do it?” during a book signing in Columbus, Ohio. The Estate’s brief explains that handwriting analysis is extremely unreliable and should not be admitted as evidence. The brief concludes that since the handwriting analysis is unreliable, the book should be excluded from evidence.
