U.S. v. Overton (9th Cir. - July 14, 2009)

The Ninth Circuit is P.C. with the best of 'em. Even Judge Tallman.

Today Judge Tallman edits this opinion (published last month) to make a single change, which alters the original opinion so that the mother of the molestation victim is now described as the victim's "biological" mother rather than her "natural" mother.

Which is an entirely proper edit, of course. Though I still wish we'd also omit the unnecessary information that clearly reveals the victim's identity and address.
