Merriam Webster: apropos Main Entry: ap·ro·pos Pronunciation: \ˌa-prə-ˈpō, ˈa-prə-ˌ\ Function: adverb Etymology: French à propos, literally, to the purpose Date: 1668 So, I would beg to differ with Kenny Bunk and agree with rolling_stone as to its proper use in the sentence. It was 'less to the purpose' [in its Opposition] for Perkins Coie to compare facts of Hollister's case to another, irrelevant case, the legal eagle claims. Its spelling is correct. Also the typos don't show up at PACER. Scribd is a conversion program that sometimes creates typos.

Correct. And then copying and pasting them here (from Scribd) creates yet more typos (on occasion). Thanks for pointing that out.
