Redactions in Judge Harris Hartz's 2010 disclosure


Sometimes computer errors are to blame for redactions. In 2010, a computer glitch appeared to remove part of 10th Circuit Judge Harris Hartz’s name from each page of his financial disclosure report. The judge said the redaction appeared because the computer did not know how to handle his middle name: an L without a period. “I am named after my great grandfather,” Hartz said. “It wasn’t clear what it stood for.” But don’t let the redaction fool you, the judge said: “I’m perfectly satisfied with my last name.”
