Court Opinion Withdrawn

September 05, 1986|Associated Press

DENVER — A federal appeals court opinion overturning a jury's $11-million award to the estate of a woman who died of toxic-shock syndrome has been withdrawn because it was filed prematurely, the court clerk said Thursday.

Robert Hoecker, clerk of the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, said he did not know when a new opinion would be filed or whether it would substantially change the withdrawn opinion, which was distributed by mistake on Tuesday.

Hoecker said the judges learned Wednesday that the opinion had been issued and told his office that it should be withdrawn.
