Incorrect spelling of name on legal document submitted in a court of law

Las Vegas, NV |
Filed under: Litigation

If a name is spelled incorrectly on a "Supplemental Order regarding request to intervene and for order unsealing court records related to search warrants", does this make the document legal? For instance if there are two persons related to the case with very similar names such as Mary- Ashley and Ashley-Ann Mary, If the Documents had Mary Ashley-Ann, would that make the document legal since none of them have that name and it could be anyone's guess who the documents referred too?

  1. Your best case scenario is that the prosecotor will have to re draft the documents and get new Orders, which will just take however long his administrative staff takes and the court takes to hear the matter again. Then, you're back to the substantive issues.
