Mark Walsh interviewed me for a piece in the August ABA Journal concerning the Supreme Court’s practice of modifying opinions after they are issued. Oh, and they don’t tell anyone. And, they change doctrine, in addition to errors. Here are my two cents:
Josh Blackman, an assistant professor at South Texas College of Law in Houston and an observer of the Supreme Court, says he was shocked to read how significant some of the revisions to opinions have been.
“The article brought to life how common this is,” he says. “Especially when it’s not just Jane and Jill but significant changes in doctrine.”
