Articles in the May 22 and May 25 editions of The Sun on an insurance industry meeting called by state insurance commissioner Alfred W. Redmer Jr. incorrectly reported the sponsorship of a 2003 campaign fund-raiser for Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., and the May 22 article contained incorrect information on the lobbying activities of a law firm.

A fund-raising event scheduled for June 2003 but later canceled was organized by David M. Funk as an individual, not the firm Funk & Bolton. Additionally, while Funk & Bolton attorneys have represented CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, and the health insurance company opposed regulatory legislation passed during the 2003 General Assembly session, firm attorneys did not lobby the governor to veto the bill.

The Sun regrets the error.
