    A.Q.Morton, B.Niblett, M.D.Baker, and myself (Michael Farringdon) have given
    evidence in courts in various countries using stylometrics.

    Much of this is written up, with footnotes, in Part III of Analysing for
    Authorship, by Jill M. Farringdon, University of Wales Press, Cardiff, 1996.

    Part III (Legal and Forensic Applications) contains chapters on Legal
    Applications, Non-standard English and the Courts, and The Critics Answered.

    An Introduction and example can be found at http://members.aol.com/qsums
