estate of his late mother-in-law, Teresa Ferrari Scacco. Under
questioning, however, Brooke acknowledged that the current
amount of that debt was actualy $30,000.
AT THE OPENING of yesterday's hearing, Judge Perera
said that if he found that the senator's misstatements had
misled his wife and her attorneys, he would reopen the case
and hold another trial.
The judge questioned Brooke directly for 90 minutes. When
he asked whether "a reasonable person ight have been

Brooke's laywers distributed a financial statement listing
Brooke's net worth at $184,105 and his wife's nest worth, after
the divorce settlement, at $463,650. Remigia Brooke's assets
were listed at $480,000 in real estate, counterbalanced by a
debt of $16,000 on a mortage.
