In your own words above you said that the judge looked at your copy of the contract and looked at their copy of the contract. You said the judge remarked that your name looked altered on their contract. I tend to believe the baliff in this matter as well. You'll find out soon enough the ruling. If in the future you have all parties sign with a blue ink pen you will have less problems proving which is an original and which is a forgery as most forgeries happen with black ink, not blue ink.
