We all make mistakes, even Justice Scalia. In his dissent in Dart Cherokee Basin Operating Co., LLC v. Owens, here, Justice Scalia owned up to an error in a 2013 case, an error he said he would take "to the grave." But he also made an important point, so eloquently put by Justice Jackson:
"I see no reason why I should be consciously wrong today because I was unconsciously wrong yesterday."
This sentiment serves as a good reminder to legal writers. Correct past errors in your writing, don't perpetuate them.
