I have read over your proposed oral announcement in this case, and it is entirely agreeable to me. I would suggest that, of you agree, it be used only as the format for an oral announcement, and not be duplicated or released to the public in any written form. If it were, I fear that its six pages would soon come to supersede in the minds of lawyers and laymen alike the 130 page opinion that the Court has produced.
