    Wonderful choice! Court of Appeals needs new life, and much more progressive views.

    This article could benefit from some clarity as to dates.
    (It seems most newspapers need help, inasmuch as they date articles by when they are posted electronically, and their date in print may not match; naming weekdays does not help many days - or years - later when no calendar is handy.)

    The last word of the text is "yesterday," which evidently means Sunday Feb. 10. That is surely an error. (The article is dated Monday the 11th, and was dispatched by e-mail that same afternoon.)
    And Paragraph 2 may be no better. Tuesday, February 12th, is a state Court holiday for Lincoln's Birthday. I see that the Court of Appeals' online calendar says it really is open Tuesday anyway, and if that's true, I'd say the reason merits note.

    If and when a solution to this widespread news reporting problem becomes evident:
    register the rights to it and sell it to the NY Times! Their online archive is sometimes utterly indecipherable (e.g., obituaries citing "yesterday" or naming recent weekdays).
