    Abstract

    The author has served the Tax Division of the United States Department of Justice for two decades as an advocate in cases involving the insanity defense. As a guide to the author's identification and orientation, the Goldfine case is presented in detail as an example of the successful use of lay evidence to contradict an initial finding based on psychiatric testimony offered to establish incompetency to stand trial in a federal court.
