Grant, Grant Not, Reverse, Reverse Not, Depub, Repub, But Is There Amend?

Rodriguez v. RWA Packing Co., No. S214150 (Cal. Jul. 29, 2015).

This is a Supreme Court order releasing a case from a grant-and-hold pending its decision on a case addressing related issues. Having decided the related case consistently with the court of appeal’s decision here, the Court orders the case republished, but amends a footnote to delete a reference that the related case is currently under review. I suppose that clarifies things. But does the Supreme Court have the authority to just order the amendment of an opinion on repub? Don’t think that’s in the rules. Inherent authority? And how is Westlaw going to handle the keycite?
