in part with the majority's position, pointing to the
commonly accepted three-prong standard for determining
intentional falsification. The third prong - knowledge
of falsity of the fact - was not proven at any point in the
case. Further, Sumwalt disagreed with expanding the
"willful disregard" standard and cautioned about setting
a dangerous precedent.
In July, the U.S Court of Appeals for the District of
Columbia overturned the Board's decision regarding
intentional falsification, but upheld part of the decision
related to appropriate technical data.
The decision states, "We uphold the Board's
determination concerning Kornitzky Group's performance
of maintenance without the appropriate technical data. But
we set aside the Board's intentional-falsification charge
because the Board departed from its own precedents
when considering whether Kornitzky Group had acted

with the requisite knowledge. We thus vacate the Board's
revocation of Kornitzky Group's air agency certificate."
Primarily, the appeals court agreed with Sumwalt's
position about falsification - that falsification must be
intentional and known to be false.
Typically, an omission in a maintenance record could
be considered falsification only if the mechanic had
intent to falsify the record.
While the court's decision essentially reinstates
the three-prong standard for determining intentional
falsification, it leaves questions as to what must be
documented on form 8130-3 by a repair station. An
authorized release certificate is not intended to be a
full documentation of work performed; it is meant to
demonstrate work is complete and the item is airworthy.
Repair stations and their technicians should stay tuned for
more potential fallout from the AeroBearings case. q
