In my FindLaw column today (re Bell Atlantic v. Twombly), I incorrectly state that none of the current Justices served as a trial court judge. A reader noted that actually Justice Souter did so between serving as NH Attorney General and a Justice of the NH Supreme Court. I didn't remember this fact because I had assumed that a state AG would be appointed directly to the state high court. Apologies to Justice Souter and to readers.
I'm sending a corrected version of the column to my editors at FindLaw but because they're based in California, it probably won't be posted until some time in the afternoon on the east coast.
