In an article Saturday, The Sun reported incorrectly that the judge overseeing the nation's largest asbestos personal-injury case had ruled that none of the more than 8,000 plaintiffs could receive punitive damages until all compensatory damages had been paid.

In fact, the order may apply only to the 6,000 claims that originated in Baltimore. Lawyers for the plaintiffs and the defendant asbestos companies are to argue the scope of Judge Marshall A. Levin's ruling.

The Sun regrets the error.
