Falk Cited by California Court of Appeals Regarding Rape by Fraud

C|M|LAW Professor Patricia J. Falk’s article, Rape by Fraud and Rape by Coercion, 64 Brook.L.Rev. 39, (1998), was cited by the California Court of Appeals in  The People v. Morales.  The court is discussing whether fraudulent impersonation in the inducement of intercourse constitutes fraud in fact, and vitiates consent.

The court first references Falk’s article at page 9.  See the opinion here: http://www.courts.ca.gov/opinions/documents/B233796.PDF
