The court having identified a typographical error in its order issued May 1, 2008, creating chapter 885 of the Wisconsin statutes, and deciding on its own motion to correct this error so the accurate language is included in the statutes when the statutes are published in the fall of 2008,

IT IS ORDERED that effective the date of this order, the typographical error found in Supreme Court Order 07-12 creating chapter 885 of the statutes is corrected as follows:

Section 1.  Section 885.54 (1) (e) of the statutes, as created by Supreme Court Order 07-12, is amended to read:

885.54 (1) (e) In matters set out in sub. par. (g), counsel for a defendant or respondent shall have the option to be physically present with the client at the remote location, and the facilities at the remote location shall be able to accommodate counsel's participation in the proceeding from such location.  Parties and counsel at remote locations shall be able to mute the microphone system at that location so that there can be private, confidential communication between them.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that notice of this correction to Supreme Court Order 07-12 creating ch. 885 of the Wisconsin Statutes be given by a single publication of a copy of this order in the official state newspaper and in an official publication of the State Bar of Wisconsin.
