Weird Westlaw Glitch/Typo

I think some Westlaw copy editor fell asleep and hit the Y key with their nose:

Weird Westlaw Glitch or Typo

Oh, and a “deck” is a copy editor term for part of the headline, like the “sub-headline,” I guess. So maybe that part was an error in the original newspaper. That story (Westlaw login required) has been on Westlaw at least since around its publication date, so say about ten months. Wonder if it will ever be corrected.
