"Jerry, just remember. It's not a lie... if you believe it." --George Costanza

Monterey California district attorney says Tara Reade lied on the witness stand but will not pursue perjury charges.

November 19, 2020 (from The Union of Nevada County, California reports)

District Attorney Jeannine M. Pacioni in a Thursday release called [Tara] Readeís statements on the witness stand "false testimony."

Reade testified between 2006 and 2019 as an expert witness in 10 cases, saying she had an undergraduate degree from Antioch University in Seattle. She also said she hadnít taken the Bar exam in California, the release states.

Both statements are incorrect, though Reade will not face perjury charges in connection with her testimony, the district attorney said.

"Tara didnít lie," said attorney Daniel Hornal, with Talos Law. "She believed she had a degree when she said she had a degree."

Perjury requires proving beyond a reasonable doubt that a witness stated information was true knowing it was false, and the information must be material. Information is material if it is probable that it would influence the outcome of the proceedings.

According to an assistant general counsel at the California State Bar, Ms. Reade twice took and failed the bar exam before she testified to the contrary in three cases. Also, according to Antioch University, Ms. Reade did not graduate and holds no degree from that institution.
