Engle v. Copenbarger & Copenbarger (Cal. Ct. App. - Dec. 24, 2007)

It's been -- to be honest -- a fairly poor holiday season for yours truly. But, on the upside, this event made my day.

Read the last paragraph of this opinion (which was published on November 26th). Then read my comments (which were posted later that afternoon). And, finally, read this change in the opinion (which was published on December 24th). The last of which was made, as far as I can tell from the docket sheet, utterly absent the filing of a petition for rehearing or request for modification from any of the parties.

Strike another blow for the marketplace of ideas, huh? As well for a positive view of the integrity and commitment of some of our judicial officers.

I'm impressed. Truly and sincerely.
