Brill Media Co. v. TCW Group (Cal. Ct. App. - Sept. 7, 2005)

Damn spellcheckers! Why can we send a man to the moon (or at least used to be able to!) but can't figure out how to program our computer to correct our embarrassing errors? Resulting, to take but one example, in this order, in which Justice Turner amends his original opinion to change the line "claims bought by entities" to "claims brought by entities" and the words "alleged contract" to "alleged conduct". In other words, to correct the errors that only a human could catch. If only such a human would bother to read the thing one last time before it was published in the Official Reporter.
