For The Record

February 06, 2009

Justice appointee: An article in Thursday's Section A about Mark Gitenstein, reporting that he is the lead candidate to head the Justice Department office that oversees legal policy and judicial nominations, said his nomination would require a waiver from the Obama administration's ethics rules. The article should have said that it might require a waiver. As the article later stated, a Justice Department official said Gitenstein would recuse himself from issues that could pose a conflict due to his former lobbying, which the official maintains would make a blanket waiver unnecessary.
