Because of a production error, a front-page story Wednesday about Christopher Dolan -- the lawyer for the family of Jahi McMath -- was missing parts of two paragraphs. The paragraphs should have read: After discussions with his wife, Dolan decided to take on the family's cause, convinced they should have a choice in the decision over whether Jahi should be taken off a ventilator. Describing himself as a "cafeteria Catholic," Dolan admits he did a lot of soul-searching on his views about end-of-life treatment, but kept coming back to the conclusion that a family, rather than just doctors and hospital administrators, should have a voice when they still believe a child can be saved.
But critics have questioned Dolan's altruism. After Dolan and Sealey appeared on CNN's Piers Morgan show Monday night, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin decried the role of a lawyer in the case, saying he was "preying on the false hope of the family." Children's Hospital spokesman Sam Singer, Dolan's chief antagonist in the Jahi saga, calls the lawyer "heartless," adding: "I've never seen such reckless disregard for the truth."

It happened Sept.11, 2012. A photo caption in Wednesday's Sports section about the U.S. bobsled team contained incorrect information about team selection for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The U.S. team will not be selected until Jan 19. Also, Nick Cunningham's two-man teammate probably will be Dallas Robinson.
