what does "with that"mean? Accuracy was not a forte of official Dallas that afternoon. On the new document—the deceased's "usual occupation" was given as "President of the U.S."—Kennedy's Washington address was erroneously recorded as 600, not 1600, Pennsylvania Avenue. The transit permit incorrectly listed his age as forty-four. The Dallas Police Department completed a homicide report later in the day and it, too, was imprecise, stating that headquarters had received word of the shooting at 5:10 P.M. With that the local rites were over. Ceremonial homage had been paid to the letter of the law.

In this context, "with that" means "as a result" or "consequently" or "for that reason" or "hence" or "thus." As a result of the occupation, age, address having been recorded, the local rites were over. The local authorities in Dallas had done everything they were supposed to do in these circumstances.

WIth the completion of all the necessary paperwork, the local rituals(comparing the filing out of forms to religious rites) were finished.
