report from Rocky Mountain #2

DSCF0525Professor Ben Bratman spoke during the second session on "Typographical Errors and the Law:  From the Amusing to the Consequential."

Bratman's presentation was impressively researched to include myriad examples of typos, ranging from an edition of the Bible that commanded "thou shalt commit adultery" to typos in tattoos giving rise to lawsuits (see photo) to typos resulting from spellcheck changes (apparently lots of courts do things "sea sponge," not "sua sponte").

Great presentation with great resource materials!
