Olson confirmed the constitutionality of the provision in the 1978 Ethics in Government Act that established the Office of Special Counsel. Rehnquist wrote the majority opinion. Bench opinions are issued by the U.S. Supreme Court immediately after the announcement of a decision. Slip opinions are issued afterwards. They are the first printings of a decision intended for wide dissemination and review, often incorporating corrections. After that stage the revised slip opinions are added to the latest paperback volume of United States Reports. A year later, that volume is printed in its final, authoritative, hardcover form.
