Model pursued by wealthy suitor. Suitor claims libel.

A wealthy suitor discovered and financed a young model. Underage, he housed her in a wing of his mansion. When she came of age, he pursued her for less Platonic activities. When she soured on the suitor, evidence was presented to show that model had committed libel. An inspection of model’s office computer was ordered. Burgess Forensics attended inspection only to find that aforementioned suitor’s computer forensic consultants did not understand how to access the data on the computer in question.

With advice from Burgess Forensics, inspection was effected. With further advice from Burgess, it was shown that any suspect email was liable to have been forged by employees of the suitor. Suitor settled out of court.
