#320 - Jack Ruby Second Trial Appeal Papers Signed by Emmett Colvin Estimate: $200+

Bound copy of papers from the case of "Jack Ruby (Jack Rubenstein), Appellant, vs. The State of Texas," 9.5 x 11.5, 83 pages, signed and inscribed on the first page in ballpoint by one of Ruby's lawyers, "To Carol, Emmett Colvin, Jr." Also annotated by the recipient, "Only 5 copies in circulation, I, Carol Farnsworth, hereby acknowledge I was present and working for Emmett Colvin at the time of the signing and swear, as asked by Mr. Colvin, not to let this out of my possession for the 1st 10 years of ownership." The papers outline Ruby's complaints against the court—that it erred in admitting certain statements made by Ruby while under arrest and incarcerated, that a pre-trial hearing was denied, that the jury was improperly selected, and that his motion for a change of venue was denied. In fine condition.

From the collection of Ronald E.F. Hoskins.
