Corrections

In a Dec. 23 "Explainer," Juliet Lapidos wrote that a defendant in a civil suit could risk paying a fine and getting probation. The defendant would risk paying damages, and while an injunction is possible in civil suits, "probation" isn't the correct terminology.

In the Dec. 20 "Today's Papers," Lydia DePillis misidentified the attorney general of New York as Mario Cuomo instead of Andrew Cuomo.
