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.
