Proofreaders Needed

The list price for J. Shoshana Ehrlich, Family Law For Paralegals, third edition (New York: Aspen Publishers, 2005) is $85.95. On pages 29 and following there are excerpts from a case cited as GOODRICH v. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, 440 Mass. 309, 98 N.E.2d 941 (2003).

The first party is Goodridge, not Goodrich. The second party is Department of Public Health, not Department of Health. You'll find the case in volume 798 of N.E.2d, not in volume 98.

This reminds me of the Jewish expression: "He writes Noah with seven mistakes." Someone's getting rich from expensive textbooks, but it's not proofreaders or fact checkers.
