To the extent that the various sections of the opinions were originally incomplete or represented earlier drafts as originally posted, the issue was clerical and inadvertent; the fault therefor rests with me alone. On the real SCOTUS, there are a lot more circulations and more chances to catch errors, and even after publication the opinions don’t become official until the public has had a chance to work with them for about eighteen months, to catch more errors. We do things a little bit faster in the blogoverse, because we like to keep things timely with the news.
Apologies to my Brother and Sister Justices for errors and to our commentariat for any inconvenience.
