Your document is probably compiled on export with the
`-intercaction=nonstopmode' option, and thus does not break the
compilation with an error. In any case, I don't really understand why
you export that part literally to LaTeX and why you add the & at
beginning of line:

& John Doe\\

Those characters are usually reserved for tabular
environments, so LaTeX returns an error. If you want to use an &
literally in LaTeX you must escape it as \&. But if you write the
anpersand directly in Org Mode you don't need to escape it, since Org
takes care of it when it exports the document.

Also, in the signature you could also avoid direct formatting. You can
define a simple environment, with an extra space before it, if you need
to add that space. This is a very elementary example, based on your
format. Then you can use in Org a special block, with the name of the

#+LaTeX_Header: \newenvironment{signature}{\bigskip\raggedright\makebox[1.5in]{\hrulefill}\par}{\par}

John Doe
