Justice White wrote the opinion of the Court, which was joined by Chief Justice Burger and Justices Blackmun, Powell, Rehnquist and O'Connor. 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 and 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.
