An article in Friday's editions of The Sun incorrectly stated the jury in the nation's largest asbestos trial would begin hearing arguments on whether punitive damages should be assessed against seven asbestos companies found negligent in an earlier phase of the trial. Two companies, MCIC and AC&S Inc., were removed from consideration for punitive damages by a prior ruling by Judge Marshall A. Levin. A third, Owens-Illinois Inc., was removed under a settlement agreement. The article incorrectly described Donna Russell's relationship to Ira Russell, a former steamfitter who died in January. Ms. Russell is Mr. Russell's daughter.
The Sun regrets the errors.
