Erratum or late recusal?

The recent decision in Atlas Power, LLC v. Commonwealth Edison Co. is curious in that it only shows Judges O’Malley and Hughes as the judges on the decision.  Judge Moore presided over the oral argument.  It is unclear if Judge Moore’s name missing from the decision is just an error or a late recusal without explanation. Usually, the Federal Circuit corrects printing errors relatively quickly.

Whoops — my “erratum.”  I see from this IPLaw360 article [Link] that it was indeed a late recusal without explanation.
