Robert Brockman—the software billionaire charged in the largest tax evasion case in American history, who has since claimed to have a form of dementia—will be evaluated by a team of three doctors, including Park Dietz, the most famous forensic psychiatrist in the country.
Dietz has testified in a range of high-profile criminal cases, including those against serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, the Unabomber, the Beltway snipers, and mass murderer Jared Lee Loughner. In addition to holding a position at the UCLA School of Medicine, Dietz runs two companies focused on workplace violence prevention and forensic analysis of criminal behavior respectively. He has also consulted for Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
In an order filed on Monday afternoon, the U.S. District Court in Houston announced that Dietz would join two other doctors—psychologist Robert Denney and neurologist Ryan Darby—to evaluate Brockman’s mental agility in a court-ordered recorded interview.
