    some time some now

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know what "some time some now" means in this paragraph?
    I looked it up but I couldn't find anything.


    "Theorists have observed the decline of the rule of law in the West
    for some time some now, beginning with A. V. Dicey over a century ago,
    renewed by Friedrich Hayek fifty years ago, and widely repeated by legal
    theorists, especially in the USA, in the past three decades.
    "

    It's a typo, the second "some" should not be there.
