Recently, the American Bar Association named former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as “Lawyer of the Year” for being the major newsmaker of 2007. Today, the ABA issued a clarification, giving Gonzales a new title: “Newsmaker of the Year“:
The article defined that term as the year’s biggest legal newsmaker, identifying former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as the major newsmaker of 2007. The Journal regrets that we did not make this theme clear.
We appreciate the feedback we’ve received, and we’re acting on it. So that there can be no confusion, the term “Lawyers of the Year” has been changed in the headline and story to “Newsmakers of the Year.” The story is otherwise unchanged from its original version.
