I’m Bluebooking, so, by very definition, I am not having fun right now. But then Westlaw decided to play a mean little trick on me.
I was double-checking a bunch of statutes so that I was sure to be Bluebooking them correctly, and, when I arrived at the South Carolina anti-hazing state (S.C. CODE ANN. § § 16-3-510 to 16-3-540 (2005)), I noticed a little red flag had appeared. Little red flags are bad things to find in Westlaw because it means that the authority is no longer good.
I clicked on the little red flag to find out what had changed and learned that H.B. 3085 had amended § 16-3-510(C) to read: “Identifying information includes, but is not limited to:” and then a list of acceptable forms of identification.
Besides the fact that there is no § 16-3-510(A) or (B) to support the amendment of a (C), this has nothing to do with hazing. The official title of the section is “Hazing unlawful; definitions.” What is this identifying information doing here???
Clearly it is misplaced. Probably just to screw up my comment. Yep, it’s a big conspiracy. Definitely.
