In the years prior to and following Curtis Leo Baggett's multiple lengthy Probation periods, He and his son declared to be "World Renowned Handwriting Experts". Bart and Curtis Baggett also founded Handwriting Services International, HSI, Handwriting University, etc., etc. These two individuals under the guise of being experts from many people who believed they were serving as an apprentice under experts when infact Bart Baggett had NOTHING more than a 6 WEEK (24 HOURS) of Class time under a Board Certified Expert(s).

Bart Baggett's buisness partner, Curtis Baggett, has been declared by the Court(s) to be a "VICIOUS LITIGANT" for bringing MANY unmerited suits in the past and can no long file lawsuits.
