Why add a suffix to the filename of a corrected judgment?

0

The main purpose of adding the suffix cor1 to the filename of a corrected judgment is to alert recipients, namely case law publishers, that this file contains corrections made to a previously distributed judgment. Whenever a corrected file is distributed, it is not self-evident for the recipients that this file should replace a previously distributed file. By bearing a different and significant name, the corrected file will be identified as such and its recipients can be alerted without having to compare the content of the files. Courts distributing theirs judgments on the Web do not usually add a suffix to the name of posted files, even after having corrected them, in order to avoid modifications to URL addresses. In these cases, clearly warning users of the Web site that downloaded files should be updated shortly before any use, is recommended.
