Ooops! Lawyer Didn't Mean To Copy Email To Nebraska Justice

An attorney has accidentally copied an email to the chief justice of the Nebraska Supreme Court.

The email was congratulating two other attorneys on their oral arguments to the court on September 30. The email sent by Warren Whitted Jr. included a reference to "some ill-conceived and uninformed questions" posed by court members that day.

Within three hours Whitted sent an email directly to Chief Justice Michael Heavican, apologizing "for any offense caused by my congratulatory email."

The emails came to light after Heavican filed a disclosure last week to let all the attorneys know about the first email and reassure them that it wouldn't affect his consideration of the case.
