Plaintiff's Petition to the United States Supreme Court for Rehearing in Grutter v. Bollinger, et al., July 18, 2003 (DENIED by United States Supreme Court, August 25, 2003)
The "slip" opinion is the second version of an opinion. It is sent to the printer later in the day on which the "bench" opinion is released by the Court. Each slip opinion has the same elements as the bench opinion--majority or plurality opinion, concurrences or dissents, and a prefatory syllabus--but may contain corrections not appearing in the bench opinion.
