In a Sept. 30 "Jurisprudence," Emily Bazelon incorrectly identified two judges. Janice Rogers Brown was identified as Janet Rogers Brown, and Consuelo M. Callahan's first name was misspelled Consuela. Also, she originally omitted the fact that Alice M. Batchelder received her J.D. from the University of Akron in 1971. And she incorrectly stated that a Virginia law that Karen Williams voted to strike down in 2000 required the Sons of Confederate Veterans to put the Confederate flag on the group's customized license plates. The law in fact prevented the group from putting the Confederate flag on its license plates.
