At Least She's Not Your Lawyer.

Lawyers do lots of bad things. One of the things that will get you disbarred, is forging the judge's signature. Brooklyn attorney Mary K. Henning was a party to the post-decree domestic relations case, not an attorney in the case, and denied having committed the forgery.

Her offense was not mitigated in the eyes of the court by the fact that she had a good prior record, by the fact that the order she forged was on a stipulated motion which would almost certainly have been signed as soon as the judge saw it, probably within a few days, or that she did it for a relatively stupid purpose, to speed up paperwork to waive paying out of state tuition to a local public school because the parties had agreed on a custody adjustment of some kind, that really didn't hurt anyone.
