Correcting An Error: Previous Headline

An early version of the previous story had an incorrect headline.  For this I apologize.  The current headline was substituted shortly after the original, incorrect  publication.  The reporter who covered the story had no input whatsoever in either version.

Bruce Weyrauch’s legal proceedings were halted early in the case  so the charges against him could be considered by the Appellate Courts.  The Supreme Court decision reflects the result of that appeal.

Again, the error was mine alone, and I apologize.
