U.S. v. Curtin (9th Cir. - May 24, 2007)

Fifteen informed, incredibly well-educated judges, each of whom reads -- and the majority of whom sign onto -- the majority en banc opinion. At least fifteen incredibly educated clerks as well.

Yet, the very first sentence of the paragraph on page 6158 reads: "The principle problem with the government's defense is that . . . ."

Principle vs. principal. When even I can spot a grammar error, you know it's pretty obvious.

The eighth sign of the apocalypse.
