"In this case, the plaintiff's attorneys * * * filed a sixty-three page errata sheet containing 868 attempted changes to their client's deposition testimony": Today. the majority on a divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit upholds a federal district court's imposition of sanctions against the attorneys who created that errata sheet. Circuit Judge Ed Carnes wrote the majority opinion.

A senior U.S. District Judge, sitting by designation, joined in all of Judge Carnes's opinion except for Section III.C. (pages 49 to 62 of the PDF document), in which Judge Carnes addresses (and, some might say, dismantles) the theory on which the dissenting opinion of Circuit Judge Gerald Bard Tjoflat is based.
