The $100 Million Paper Signature Blunder?

By: Daryl Bernstein / Monday, December 12, 2011

Ezekiel Vermillion, an attorney at Adler Vermillion & Skocilich in New York and a RightSignature user, might have spotted the most expensive signature blunder in history. He tweeted:
Legal malpractice claim in dodger's divorce hangs on closing set manipulation. http://on.wsj.com/uEgQtO  This is why i use @rightsignature 
What's the backstory here? Frank McCourt, owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, alleges that discrepancies in a set of signed paper documents may have cost him over $100 million. During a prolonged divorce proceeding, questions arose about the integrity of the signed copies of a marital-property agreement Mr. McCourt executed with his now ex-wife, Jamie. The Wall Street Journal says:
Evidence surfaced that there were discrepancies among the original six signed copies, namely that attachments to three named Mr. McCourt as the sole owner of the Dodgers while attachments to the three others didn't. Evidence also revealed that the copies with attachments that didn't name Mr. McCourt as the sole owner had been replaced by attachments that did shortly after all six copies had been signed.

USPS Delivery Slowdown and the Rise of Electronic Signatures

By: Daryl Bernstein / Thursday, December 8, 2011

The U.S. Postal Service has announced that first-class mail will take several more days in transit, as the USPS dramatically shrinks operations in response to precipitous declines in mail volume and billion-dollar annual operating losses. This news is further indication that the paper era is coming to an end as businesses transition to more efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally sustainable web delivery technologies.

Over the last decade, as companies adopted online billing systems and sent most notifications by email, one of the few remaining use cases for traditional postal mail was facilitating signatures. Now that use case, too, is antiquated. Taking multiple days each way in transit, wasting paper and ink, and having little visibility into document progress doesn't make sense in the internet era. Instead, businesses large and small, in every industry, are using RightSignature to enable their customers, employees, vendors, and partners to fill out and sign documents online in minutes.

When a post office near our headquarters faced closure recently, the Noozhawk highlighted RightSignature as a contributor to the paperless revolution:
RightSignature ... has had a direct effect on traditional forms of mail delivery. It enables businesses to prepare and sign documents online so they can close more deals in less time, reduce paper and ink expenses, minimize environmental impact and avoid fax hassles.
