The article is entitled ''Supreme Court Justice Alito delivers Opperman Lecture''.
In the blog posted at the Times Delphic website, Ms. Voge explains she was approached by who she assumed was the staff writer for the piece, a Ms. Robinson. She asked Ms. Voge to give her opinions and thoughts as a law student.
She goes on to explain that she was more than happy to do so and thought that Ms. Robinson asked some incredibly insightful questions.
Unfortunately, Ms. Voge found, upon reading the article, that she'd been misquoted. The article stated that Ms. Voge had said: ''We, as law students, learn and study how history, precedent and case law are important in decision making, and it carries over to the Supreme Court.''
Voge describes this statement as ‘woefully inaccurate in terms of its substance'.
This quote, per Voge, was her answer to the question, what had she learned from Justice Alito's lecture?
To clarify what she'd actually said, Ms. Voge states that law school ''teaches us the importance of history, precedent and case law.'' Additionally she learned ''the Supreme Court relies on these things not only in their decision making but also in their procedural decisions, particularly regarding the importance and role of oral argument in the current Supreme Court.''
Per Ms. Voge, she states this was the context of her answer and the source of her quotation. She also states the quote in the article was ripped out of that context and, as it is, is severely lacking in its true substance.
She continues, stating that ''by being taken out of the necessary context, the quote itself is inaccurate in its information because ''history, precedent and case law'' do not ''carry over to the Supreme Court''-the practice of using case law as precedent was established by the Supreme Court and ''carries over'' to the practice of law.''
Voge suggests the Delphic Times writers strive for accuracy, and that they keep the quote given in the true context in which it was given. She thanks her readers for their time.

Chris Armstrong, University of Michigan Student Assembly President Andrew Shirvell, Michigan’s assistant attorney general, was removed on Monday for attacking Chris Armstrong, the first openly gay president of the University of Michigan's student assembly. In recent months, his bizarre actions and unnatural preoccupation with Armstrong's sexual orientation, along with an inflammatory blog Shirvell started in the spring, had prompted condemnation from local officials and the University of Michigan to ban the st ...
Paris Side trips create an atmosphere of medieval times As I walked through a narrow path avoiding the brush of nettles, I passed into a clearing of crows circling a beige-blanketed wheat field. It was a familiar setting that I had seen many times before. It was here that Van Gogh created his memorable ''The Wheat fields with the Crows,'' one of 78 paintings completed in 70 days before his death in July 1890 in this medieval village of Auvers-sur-Oise. Nearby was the Eglise Notre Dame, the church immo ...
When bad weather equals good times Vertical rain, 70-mph wind and 30-foot swells don't sound much like visitor attractions, but Pacific coast storm watching is the newest lure for the been-there-done-that crowd. It's a simple premise: Why not be in the Weather Channel instead of watching it?
Timea Hargesheimer: From Hard Times to the American Dream ''There were actually seasons in all three of the places I grew up, in contrast with the almost year-long summer here in Arizona. In Munich I remember going to Oktoberfest at a young age because my mother was a beer maiden there. I like Seattle the best because it rains there as much as the sun shines here, and I love rain. In Europe the winters were extremely cold, and the winters were very harsh, especially in rural Hungary where we lived. ...
