…is also having a rough day. The headline:

Judge Withholds $5M Award for LAPD Officers

And the story:

A federal judge refused Monday to overturn awards of $5 million each to three police officers who claimed the city of Los Angeles made them scapegoats for a corruption scandal.
The decision by U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney upheld a February jury decision. Carney also said he would not grant a new trial, finding there was enough evidence for the jury’s conclusion that the LAPD “ruined the lives of three highly skilled” policemen and the department “had no probable cause” to arrest the men.

So I’m thinking he meant to say UPholds? Schmaybe?

    It’s L.A., ths. “Withhold” might be correct. It is surely plausible.

  2. You’re right, Rob. What was I thinking. LA, LA, LA ~ the air is different out there.

    That’s very generous giving the benefit of the doubt that way, but no, the copywriter is a moron. That headline states exactly the opposite of the story.
