In a July 11 "Medical Examiner," Ezra Klein misstated several numbers in a study of medical malpractice cases by Dr. David Studdert.

In a July 10 "Sports Nut," Robert Weintraub misspelled the Italian team's nickname. It is Azzurri. The piece also misstated the year when Zinedine Zidane head-butted a player in the Champions League. It was 2000. Also, the Jules Rimet Cup is no longer given to the World Cup champion. The winner now gets theFIFA World Cup Trophy.

In a July 10 "Today's Papers," Emily Biuso incorrectly stated that Italy beat France in the World Cup 5-3. Italy bested France 5-3 in penalty kicks after a 1-1 game.
