podcast showcases West case editing

If you haven't yet had the chance to visit operations at West headquarters in Eagan, Minnesota (and even if you have), you may enjoy this podcast (with jazzy soundtrack) that shows how a case (in this instance, District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. ___, 128 S. Ct. 2783, 171 L. Ed. 2d 637 (2008)) goes through all the editorial processes, from raw opinion to headnote drafting to assignment of topic/key numbers to published case in Westlaw and print.
