Judge Paul Martial’s Decision on Hatfield v Child, Apr. 2, 2013Hatfield decision

 A LANDMARK COURT DECISION BY A COURAGEOUS JUDGE…

Hatfield v Child

A Huge Blow Against the Conspiracy Theorists

Another Body Blow to Donald Robinson as a Morrisseau Authenticator

Joe McLeod’s Sterling Reputation as a Credible Morrisseau Expert Re-affirmed

Judge Paul Martial has just given his decision.

In an open display of uncommon judicial courage, and demonstrating an intellectual rigor not shared by any journalist handling the Morrisseau file over the last twelve years, Judge Paul Martial laid out, in black and white, exactly how he saw the story, the witnesses, their “expert reports,” and their testimony.

Margaret Hatfield, looking at a painting she once loved, now hates, because she has lost some $40,000 following advice from Conspiracy Theorists she found on an "internet date" instead of practicing due diligence with independent experts.

Margaret Hatfield, looking at a painting she once loved, now hates, because she has lost some $40,000 following advice from Conspiracy Theorists she found on an “internet date” instead of practicing due diligence with independent experts.

Without a single qualifying word or phrase, he finds that “Wheel of Life” is an authentic Morrisseau.

“The painting “Wheel of Life” is not a forgery. The Defendants did not misrepresent the authenticity of the painting.”

He unequivocally rejects the “Expert Report” of Donald Robinson and rejects his analysis and conclusion that “Wheel” is a forgery.

Donald Robinson had his expert report totally slammed by a judge who rejected his expertise, his report, and his call that the painting is a forgery.

Donald Robinson had BOTH his expert report, and his attempt at handwriting analysis, totally slammed by a judge who rejected his expertise, his report, its conclusions, and his call that the painting is a forgery.

“He has no formal training as an expert witness in handwriting analysis and his evidence is rejected.”

“The Court rejects his expert report and his conclusion that the Morellian analysis, style, colour, and provenance all pointed to forgery.”

Judge Martial found the following especially compelling and credible Defence witnesses:
– Joseph McLeod of Maslak McLeod
– Wilfrid Wolf Morrisseau

He preferred their presentation on the stand, and their testimony, in every way, to that of the Plaintiff’s Witnesses, Donald Robinson and Ritchie Sinclair.

He found that Ms. Hatfield, as the Plaintiff,
– loses her case claiming she was a victim of forgery,
– refuses to award her costs of $40,000 she asked for, 
– refuses to overturn the sale,
– orders her to pay the Defendant, Artworld of Sherway, the $1,500 in costs the Defendant had asked for.

In line with what we had predicted many weeks ago.

To see why we had foreseen this:

Go to the Hatfield v Child Case

Sinclair and Robinson right, outside the courtroom where the tag-team performed for Margart Hatfield, Conspiracy Theorist Proxy #4. The association has cost her some $40,000 wasted on a case she could never win.

Sinclair and Robinson right, outside the courtroom where the tag-team performed for Margart Hatfield, Conspiracy Theorist Proxy #4. The association has cost her some $40,000 wasted on a case she could never win. On April 2, 2013 the tag team, giving it their best shot, suffered total defeat, in the worst showing, ever, for the Conspiracy Theory position.
