Decades ago, I had the dream job of every young lawyer: clerking for a justice of the Supreme Court. On the morning a decision authored by my boss, Justice Byron White, was scheduled to be released, I gave it a final reading. I was horrified to discover that it contained a footnote citing a decision the court had not yet released. I had included the footnote in anticipation that the other decision would be released months before ours, but instead its release had been delayed. As a result, we were about to reveal to the world the outcome of a case before its release had been approved by the court.
